The ConnectU deposition spans only one day; Eduardo's deposition spans the course of two days. Neither of these three days coincide with one another, so they all took place on separate days.
Separation of days not supported by explicit canonical evidence is assumed/garnered from wardrobe switches, particularly Mark's.
Eduardo's depositions take place in Palo Alto. ("Sy and the others are getting a steak on University Avenue...") There are a lot of law firms around Palo Alto. Also, in the last scene Mark asks if anyone would mind if he stayed to use his computer for a bit, which I highly doubt he'd need to ask if he was in a conference room in the Facebook offices.
When the script cuts to the depositions (Eduardo's, Day 1), we get this description of the setting: The room is glass on two sides and through the windows we can see the behemoths of Silicon Valley--Oracle, SunMicrosystems, Google, etc.
