Timely deposits of pick up contributions

Are there any federal rules on timely deposits that would apply to pick-up contributions? Would it make a difference if the pick up contributions were made directly by the employer or by withholding them from the employees' pay?

No. From a federal perspective, pick-up contributions are treated as employer contributions, even if there are corresponding wage reductions to finance them. And the federal laws governing the timing of employer contributions don't apply to governmental plans (which are the only kind of plans that can have pick-up contributions). If there are restrictions, they would have to come from state law, not federal.
