In brief: As needed

Best not to pick out the ears, you risk injury or impacting the wax.
Clean the ears with peroxide followed by a drop of mineral oil. Or you can use an otc wax kit. If you try that for a week without improvement, see your ent.

In brief: Depends

Depends on the person and how often wax forms.
...Varies with individuals.
