Mauryan Empire after Ashoka

Ashoka's embrace of Buddhism has been said to have been the foundation of the reign of social and political peace and non-violence across all of India. Ashoka sponsored the spreading of Buddhist ideals into Sri_Lanka , Southeast Asia, West Asia and Mediterranean Europe

This occured after Ashoka attacked the civilization of Kalinga....

Did this peace and halt on empire expansion and violence persist until the end of the Mauryan Empire or did the peace start falling apart after Ashoka died and was succeeded?

Which Chinese dynasty was created by the Mongols?

It was named the Yuan Dynasty. Yuan Dynasty was followed by the Song Dynasty. The founder of Yuan has been a topic of discussion. In the history of China, it was Genghis Khan who fought through the plains of China, seizing the lands and slowing establishing the new dynasty of China. However, in the records of history, it was his grandson Kublai Khan, that named the dynasty and totally seized control over the Chinese. Yuan Dynasty lasted from 1271-1368. Yuan Dynasty had Dadu, now known as Beijing, as its capital. China fluorished under the rule of the Mongols, the Mongolian government was opened to western influence and trade and cultural exchange started increasing in China at that time. One of the best examples could be said to be the arrival of Marco Polo during Yuan Dynasty, who then stayed in the country as an ambassador for Venice and China and also a co-ordinator between the Pope and Kublai Khan to spread Christianity. The Mongols introduced notes to China in 1273, making the Chinese the first civilization to use paper notes in the world. The rich flow of cultural exchange including the introduction of Nestorianism and Roman Catholicism were some predominant examples. Trade was more focused on the exchange of goods from the western countries to China. China introduced porcelain, printing techniques and Chinese medical literature to the Europeans, who in turn imported thin glass and cloisonné, a form of metalworking technique to make vases and etc, to China. China can be said to fluorish a lot under the rule of the Mongols. However , when the Mongolian ruled was turned over, China closed her doors again. There was a stop of western influence in China.
