Question about English (US)

Finish to do something/ finish doing something Does this sound natural?

You can either say "start to do something" or "start doing something". What about "finish"? I read you can only say "finish doing something". Is that so?

Also, would a sentence like "After finishing doing homework I went home" sound natural? Two gerund together don't sound right to me.

Whenever a sentence pattern would make you end up using two gerund in a row it is better to rephrase the sentence, right? → After I finished doing homework I went home

What do you think? Thanks..
