Help With Tile Replacement

Hey everyone. Working on replacing the kitchen tile from 5×5 square subway to glass mosaic. I have a couple questions regarding the pictures below. First, in the first picture, there is a cable outlet that I don’t use. Can I just put fiberglass mesh tape over this, then put mastic over that to mount the tile? Or is there something else that I would have to do? Last option is cutting around it in the tile to just cover it with a blank faceplate. In the second picture, one of the tiles took out some drywall. Anything special I have to do to put up the tile? Or can I just use fiberglass mesh and mastic over it? Thanks for any help. As an aside, I know that I have some sanding to do to level out the mounting surfaces. via /r/DIY
