A kathirah has to change the sanitary napkin before every salat and perform three ghusls - the first before dawn prayer, second before noon and afternoon prayers, and the third before evening and night prayers. It is not wajib for a woman with istihazah kathirah to perform wudu' for every salat as the ghusl is sufficient.
If a woman sees istihazah kathirah after the dawn prayer, then on that day she has to do two ghusls -one before noon prayer and the other before evening prayer.
If she sees istihazah kathirah after afternoon prayer, then on that day she will have to do one ghusl only before the evening prayer.
If she sees istihazah kathtrah between noon and afternoon prayers or between evening and night prayers, then on that day she has to perform the ghusl before afternoon or night prayers.
The mustahazah kathirah should combine the noon and afternoon prayers after the second ghusl, and also the evening and night prayers after the third ghusl. It means that if a woman performs ghusl before noon prayer and does not combine the recitation of noon and afternoon prayers, then she will have to do a separate ghusl for afternoon prayer also. The same rule applies if she recites the evening and night prayers separately.
