Go to your general preferences under your account.

Change the connect to interval to something larger. Go to BOINC manager and under the projects tab highlight Einstein and hit update. This will force communication with the project servers.

This shouldn't be done in large jumps... only increase by a day or so at at time until you have the right amount of work on your machine.

This is a global setting so it'll affect all of your running projects.

BOINC tends to be pretty conservative with regards to deadlines. It'll try very hard not to get into an overcommitted state. So bump up that number slowly.

[edit to include a missing step... I shouldn't be doing this at 6 am]

See this thread for a discussion of the first question.

I think you're asking in your second question about the length of work units. They come in two different sizes, short and long with long ones about 10x the length of short ones.

See this thread.
