Depends on your load. :-)

I think it is quite self-explanatory when you know how works Ceph. Don't 
run Ceph if you don't understand it :) Hell don't plan a Ceph deployment 
before understanding it either (reading this list can help too, look at 
the archives).

Looking at the health status output.

It is not mandatory, I administer 4 3-node clusters and all have 1gbit NICs.
