  3. You are right about #3.

    For #1 --
    The varsity team will play = ind cl
    as soon as the junior varsity is finished = dep cl


    For #2 --
    Thirty laps is the most = ind cl
    that I have ever swum = dep cl

    Note the existence of an introductory (signal) word/phrase at the beginning of both dependent clauses: "as soon as" and "that."
