Is there a filing deadline for formally requesting a writ of certoriari?

Also, is there a timeline on how long the Court can take to grant or
deny cert?  If SCOTUS doesn't do anything about it by the end of its
term (in the late summer or early fall), does that count as an analogue
to a "pocket veto", effectively denying cert?

Or does SCOTUS always explicitly either grant or deny cert?
