In brief: Depends on the age

The number and length of naps depends on the age of a child from newborn to school age.
Sorry i can't answer this without a specific age.

In brief: Variable

Babies sleep anywhere from 8 to 20 hours in a 24 hour period.
Some babies sleep in long blocks of time and some cat-nap. Your baby will pick her own schedule despite your attempts to put her on one.
