Is it common practice to install smaller cut peices of tile (1x12) in the inside corners of the shower so the rest of 12x12s and a 4 inch bullnose fit properly?

Also, alignment of insert tiles in corners is off. What should be done?

There is no hard-and-fast rule. I have seen bathrooms where people have installed smaller tiles throughout since they offer better traction. At another place, the homeowner used smaller tiles throughout as accent tiles. So really this is up to you.

I always like to place the cut pieces in the corners where they are less noticeable. The cut edge will be facing the corner.
Anytime you cut a tile you end up with a rough edge which doesn't really match up to great with a factory edge.
So in answer to your question, there is no set rule, but it makes for a more professional job tucking the cuts in the corner.
Hope this was helpful
Good luck
