infinitif passé

Can infinitif passé be used with avant de under some circumstances?

Here's an example sentence from my French class:

Il n'ira pas jouer avec ses amis avant d'avoir fini ses devoirs.

The question was to correctly conjugate the verb finir in the bolded place; I'd written finir (infinitif présent) in the first place.

Similarly, here's a question (and a sentence) about whether we can use subjonctif passé after avant que(+ne):


On ne lui permettait pas de jouer avec ses amis avant qu'il _______________ (ne finir) ses devoirs.

The answer key gives n'ait fini; I wrote ne finisse.
