You are right that this looks inconsistent, however, it is not.

You get this view for the weekly agenda only because
org-agenda-start-on-weekday is nil.  You can set it to 1 to
make the week agenda start on Monday and then be consistent with
the monthly view.

You are looking for a view that covers 30 days.
The view you are requesting can be made with

C-u 30 C-c a a

or with a simple custom command that sets
org-agenda-span to 30 in the options section
of the command.
