It can vary: I'm not sure about normal, but daily occurrences of hallucinations and delusions can be expected for someone with this diagnosis. Effective med management is essential to help mitigate the effect these symptoms might have on levels of daily functioning.

Yes: In the more extreme cases of schizoaffective disorder, if the patient is not medicated and not going to therapy, yes, hallucinations and delusions can occur daily.
