I'm actively looking for a new job which Ideally I would like to start from beginning of September. I already saved many job offers for which I would like to apply.
Should I already send my applications and starts interviews? Would it be a 'bad thing' if one of the companies offered me a job and I ask them to wait until September to start the job?

If these are jobs that really excite you, you should apply. Who knows if they will still be available later on. Plus, some interviews take a long time to get an offer anyways. Just be upfront and set expectations on your start date with your recruiter appropriately (you might want to be strategic and fold it into your negotiation conversations, but also don't waste people's time if your timelines don't work for the company's business needs).

I think at the very least, start updating your resume, LinkedIn profile, and everything else in the upcoming weeks/months. Some interviews may take weeks to months to go through while others could only take a short amount of time.

And to answer your question, it depends on the company. Some companies don't mind waiting for you to start if you're the ideal candidate they are looking for while others would want you to start somewhat soon because your position is needed on the team. I for one have been on a team where we needed someone ASAP to reduce workload across our small team so the candidate starting sooner would be ideal for me and my teammates.

Probably a bit early unfortunately but agree with the above - if there is a company you are particularly interested in doesn't hurt to ask

Based on my recent experience I do not think it is too early to start. Depending on the role, it would take at least a month but I have had things take several months and with summer coming I would expect maybe longer with interviewers taking vacations ect. Also be sure you get familiar with the types of interviews. If they are technical you need to start prepping now depending on the role.
