In brief: Depends

Every 2 hours is a good minimum while awake to prevent infection.

In brief: Variable

1)depends on fluid volume intake, then on functional bladder capacity.
In children also depends upon developmental stage. 2)many medical conditions affect urinary frequency, presence or absence of involuntary bladder contractions + intravesical pressure initiating sensation of need or urge to urinate. 3)with pathologic urinary frequency will also need to void frequently at night. Normal 2-4 hourly.

In brief: That depends

It depends on how much fluids you drink, whether you are taking medicines that make you urinate more (like diuretics), or if you have kidney disease.
So, it is a hard question to answer in any detail. If there is an issue, i would see your doctor.
