do I turn the phone off or leave it on? This seems to be overlooked in all the documentation I've seen so far.

I almost always leave it on. Sometimes i turn it off interested in knowing the correct way too though.

Leave it on

Leave the BB powered on and remove the battery. Or push Alt> Right Shift> and Delete.

I read a post somewhere that encouraged doing this on a weekly basis to prevent trouble. Is this correct/advisable?

Yes a periodic Battery pull will help solve some problems as well as free up cached memory. Some folks do it daily, I do it about once a week when I think about it. In fact...I'll do one now. :)
