No: The world would be a far more sickly place if that were true. Growing up is difficult enough without people peddling unfounded fears. Learn about your body, perhaps think about the person you will marry, and use this to become an adult. And talk to someone sensible -- doctor, pastor, coach, even (!) a parent.

Commonplace: This is part of a persons life.Having sex, whether it be alone or with a partner is part of life. Few cultures are open about the subject, but it is the norm not the exception. The frequency is more common during early adolescence and diminishes as more outlets for sexuality are present.

Not much: This is typical for most guys especially before they get married. Vary your technique, and think about that one special person you love / will marry. You'll learn about your mind and body in preparation for being a adult. Embrace yourself and love responsibly.

Masturbation Normal: Nope. Masturbation is a common part of the human experience. All men you know masturbate or have masturbated, some even more frequently than you. There is no medical or health reason not to masturbate and there is no disease that can come from simple masturbation.
