is it common to say "around 3 o'clock" or I should say "about"? And how is it in the US?

Hello! So either one is fine. Here's some examples for context: "The party starts around 7 o'clock." (To sound more natural you could also just say 7. "The party starts around 7.") "At about 3 o'clock, the meeting should start." Hope this helps.
