I have read that Prophet Muhammad SAW performed 11 rakaat of Taraweeh, in fact it was 8 rakaat Taraweeh + 3 rakaat Witr. It was Umar RA who introduced 20 rakaat Taraweeh. Therefore not a Sunnah. Please clarify.

Not true. Ibn Abaas r.a. said : Rasoullah SAW read 20 rakaats taraweeh-Ibn Abi Shaibah.
