It is imperative to keep the system & applications synchronized. Failure to do so can result in weirdnesses described in Section 15.4.1. So before updating applications, update the system. Studying Section 5.1 would also be beneficial.
How often do current users have to rebuild xenocara, kernel and userland?
On whatever schedule you want. As you can see from other responses to this thread, many don't. Personally, I update weekly. Some developers update daily. It all depends your goals & time.
