In brief: Baby movement
All depends on many factors including your diet and medications, the baby's size.
Once a day is usually adequate but even that doesn't mean anything bad because you just might not feel it.

In brief: As much as possible!
Babies should spend lots of time on the floor and be given lots of opportunities to move around.
It's good for strength and acquisition of physical skills. It is also very important, however, for cognitive skills: babies need the chance to explore and experiment.
