In brief: Numbers
Are not that important.
What is important is your clinical status, ie how you feel, and the number of breakthrough infections you have on your current treatment.

In brief: CVID
Not a fair question.
The immune specialist should follow your IgG levels (yes) but what is more important is that you have fewer infections, are not requiring antibiotics as frequently, less hospitalizations or er visits, no adverse reactions to infusions, and that the correct replacement igiv has been chosen which suits your immune deficiency best.
