I was told in class that you should cut waistband interfacing on bias, while neck facings get cut on straight how about for these:

sleeve cuff

Also, when you cut interfacing on bias, does it always have to be perfect 45 degree angle bias, or can you cut it at slight angle?

If the fabric pieces are cut on the bias, then the interface pieces should also be cut on the bias. Since all armscye curves are on biases, Those facings get cut on bias, even if it appears that the blouse piece is cut on straight grain.

Also, don't slouch the grain degree, or the two pieces will relax and stretch and shrink at different amounts, and you will get puckering, wrinkling, and eventually, a very poor garment hang that will get worse with each laundering or cleaning..
