I'm not using Sid right now, but, when I did, I would check for updates every two or three days, and generally find a bunch of them. Of course, I did have multiple desktops installed . . . .

I check for updates 5+ times a day, whenever I turn on my pc that is :P
I upgrade whenever there is an uppgrade and I dist-upgrade only when the package(s) to be installed do not remove any already installed package(s).

Same for my testing installation.

Yes, but sometimes you have to wait for transitions.
