A: grammar books will tell you to put the preposition before the relative pronoun. This is what you should do in formal writing.

However, very few people do that when they speak. When you speak feel free to put the preposition at the end of the relative clause.

In this case, the first sentence has better style and is easier to read.
Q: What is the difference between None and No ?
A: If someone is asking you for permission you can tell them yes or no. You could not use the word "none".

If someone is asking you how many apples are left you could tell them there are no apples left.

If you don't want to say the word "apples" in your response to them you could say "there are none left". You could not use the word "no". "There are no left" is grammatically incorrect.
Q: What is the difference between None of them is and None of them are ?
A: I think we often use these interchangeably. But only the second one is grammatically correct. The plural form of "is" should be used with a plural noun.

No one is coming to the party. None of them are coming to the party.
Q: What is the difference between Either of, Neither of and Any of, None of ?

Neither of: two objects negative
Any of: two or more objects positive

"Would you like either of these?"

"Neither of these will work."

"Any of these are fine."
"Would you like any of these?"

"None of these are good?"

A: "None" should be singular, but it's also very common for people to use it as plural.

In phrases like "none of us" or "none of the books", people instinctively use plural verbs ("have" and "are") since there are those plural subjects ("us" and "books"). However, "none" is a singular verb and it really should be used with singular verbs.

To answer your question, the correct ones are:
- None of them knows me
- None of us has been there
- None of the books is mine

If you use plural with "none", it's not completely wrong because people still debate this.
