I've been trying to google if both sides with king and queen vs king and queen play correct is it always a draw? Is there any forced checkmate possible other than the other player makes a bad move with the queen? I cannt find anything on it and i see this situation a lot.
Pawnless it's a draw. With one pawn it depends (sometimes a win, sometimes a draw) and in some cases best play is very difficult.
In some very rare cases it's a win. They usually happen after a K+Q vs K+pawn on the 7th endgame. For instance :
