Italian numerals

Hi guys,

I wanted to ask Italian native speakers whether inserting 'e' after cento, e.g.:
101 = centouno / cento e uno
154 = centocinquantaquattro / cento e cinquantaquattro
201 = duecentouno / duecento e uno
254 = duecentocinquantaquattro / duecento e cinquantaquattro
is acceptable to them. If so, would you consider this standard language? Would you use it yourself?
Can you have more than one 'e' in a numeral, e.g.
1101 = mille e cento e uno

Thanks in advance!

Peter
