If you have a connection to the product (e.g. you work for MurGee), you should mention this in your answer.

comment Framework and tools for managing testing and monthly releases?
What I'm hearing is that you have a lot of tools, you have a regular schedule and some idea of different types of testing that are presumably giving you enough usable info about whether you can release now for you to continue spending money on them. Does that sound accurate? When you say you want a methodology, what benefits do you hope to gain? What might be different? (Note: I don't believe it's ever worthwhile to try to "pick a methodology off a shelf", you need to tailor it to your context. But currently all we know about that is the above. It'd help to know a bit more about your goals.

comment What is a good KPI for software QA?
+1 for "whole of team" KPIs - makes little sense to measure testing separately from what we're meant to be helping to deliver.

comment How do you provide proper tests when there is little documentation
Sounds more like a discussion for chat than the (length limited) comments section! Do you want to ask again over in chat? Happy to discuss, but don't think the comments is the right place for an extended discussion.

comment Fundamental Requirements For an Entry Level QA Engineer
However, going back to your question - you've actually got a lot of different questions in the background, and I think you could do with getting clear on what your most important question is here before we start trying to answer it. Do you actually want to know how to get a job in SQA, or do you want to know more about what SQA experience might be helpful to get you a job in your original desired web developer role? While testing is a good skill for a developer to have in their toolbox, it's important we understand what your end goal actually is.

comment Fundamental Requirements For an Entry Level QA Engineer
Hi Java Bean, and welcome to the site. You're right that SQA is its own monster, and a career path in its own right. I'm not surprised your profs gave you duff advice, my CS profs tended to be rather clueless about testing as it's actually done in the real world too. And it's also frequently misunderstood by non-testers. Your industry contacts may be referring to much more junior "warm body" type roles, rather than professional testing - I doubt you'd see many of those on job sites, they often get filled internally.
