1) you can anneal whatever you can fit in it.

2) you'll want to program your controller to garage temp and hold it there, so while you work you put pieces in there as they get done. once you're done torching, start the annealing cycle.
if you're working on a big piece, you'll want to pop it back in the kiln every so often to keep it's temp up.

3) i like elements in the ceiling of the kiln....but then again the only kiln i've used is set up this way so i'm biased. i don't think kilns are vented, but ?
ceramic fiber sucks. big time. firebrick is worth the extra $ in more ways then one. it also holds heat better.

4) depends on the kiln. mine, about 40 minutes at full power (to 1000f garage). your mileage will vary with different kilns.
