It depends which route and how long you take to stop along the way. Estimate from Beverly Hills to San Francisco 7 hours; 10 if you do some stops for lunch and quick views of areas on drive up. If you do Big Sur highway 1 drive though - which is slow and scenic add 2 to 3 hours to this estimate.

For the drive to Las Vegas, which route are you taken - southern route, through Yosemite, via tahoe? as it will make a difference. Thanks.

I'd say a good drive from the Los Angeles area to San Francisco would be two or three days northbound, then from SF to LV it's 3-4 days.

Stop in Cambria/Pismo area for a night, then in Monterey/Carmel.

From SF, stop 1-2 nights in Yosemite and 1 night in the eastern Sierra around Lone Pine (assuming Tioga Pass is open.)

If your goal is just to arrive in SF, flying to SFO is the easiest, fastest, and probably cheapest. You won't need a car in SF, so fly on to Las Vegas as well.

Most visitors drive from the LA area to San Francisco via Highway 1 through Big Sur (you head north on 101 and cut over to Highway 1 around San Luis Obispo). A minimum of two days should be allowed for this trip. People usually stop around Pismo Beach or Cambria along the way.

If you're in a big hurry, there are reasonably priced internal airline fares between the two cities (and lots of flights). The flight is a bit over an hour. And you will not need, nor want, a car in San Francisco.

Again, again there are very reasonable fares and lots of flights between SF and Vegas.
