I also applied weed n feed and pest control to the lawn this weekend (plus fertilized palm trees, tabebuia, gardenia and juniper and applied perimeter pest control around house). I still have St. Augustine. I go back and forth on using weed n feed as I don’t find it very effective for some weeds. I have had better experience using spray on products for spot treatment (Image, for example) but you have to be careful not to use it too often or over-apply. On St. Augustine, which is salt tolerant, you can also sprinkle some baking soda over weeds, but I wouldn’t do that with Bermuda or other grasses.

As far as leaving the yard, it depends on how out of level it is. I wouldn’t want it completely level - I want water draining away from house. If just a small area that needs to be leveled a little bit, I’d throw some top soil over the grass (but not enough to completely bury the grass) and keep doing that until it got leveled.
