The NETWORKDAYS function returns the number of weekdays between two dates. If both dates are the same, it returns 1. So neglecting any correction for starting time, you might use:
=IF(H12="","",(NETWORKDAYS(B12,E12)-1+H12-C12)*1440)

The above formula is probably not sophisticated enough for your real problem. Among other things, it can't return a negative number. And it ignores your special handling for Mondays. But if you can give some sample data and expected results, I can fine-tune the formula to suit.

As an added bonus, NETWORKDAYS can exclude a list of holidays that you choose from the calculation. That feature may or may not come into play for your real situation--but for many problems it does.
