String Replacement: How often you need to replace your strings depends on how often you play, climate conditions, type and quality of string, etc. Generally, every three to four weeks is about right, but if you play hard and often, you'll want to change strings as soon as they start to feel grungy or lose tuning stability.
Tune-Up/Setup: Generally, it's a good idea to have a setup done two to four times a year to compensate for seasonal fluctuations in temperature and humidity.
