I've downloaded following file:
And found 2 different MD5 sums:
(1) Which is correct ?
(2) Where can I find file size of the installer ?
Both are correct :-) - the first relates to the dmg file, the second one to the PGP key (so, for your download, the first one is the correct one, to be precise). So you can check both the dmg and the pgp key (in ASCII format) for integrity by the md5 hash, and additionally, the dmg by the pgp key.
You can find this information (as well as the installer file size) on the download page (here's a screenshot for the windows version, it's almost the same for Mac versions):
If you follow the info link, you'll find detailed information about the download, the different hash sums, and the mirrors.

Thank you tohuwawohu , cloph !
I didn't know that caption "info" on the download button is a link to another page ... And somehow couldn't find file size in unit of bytes. (not MB)
Today I found that following link is also useful: http://download.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/stable/
Thank you again.

The first one is the "correct" one.
The second one is the md5sum of the cryptographic signature (the *.asc file). It also is a correct md5sum, but not from the dmg.
The size of the download is both written on the download-page as well as on the file's details/info page (where you can also find the md5sum).
(The asc file is a digital signature, you can verify the authenticity of the download using that file. I.e. that it really is provided by The Document Foundation.)
