In brief: From one to many
The most common response to acupuncture is a very pleasant state of relaxation.
It can often relieve stress immediately but you may need a series of treatments over time to help relieve chronic stress if you cannot learn to manage it in other ways as well.

In brief: No set amount
Acupuncture has been found very useful for chronic pain.
Be sure that the person is qualified in acupuncture and does not make exaggerated claims of what acupuncture will treat. It is felt that acupuncture may cause the release of our bodies natural pain chemicals, endorphin, which relieve the pain resulting in less stress associated with chronic pain.
