My apologies for the delayed reply.  Each run period is initialized 
by repeating the first day of the run period until the changes are 
less than the tolerances specified in the BUILDING object.  Running 
just 1 day per month can be done, but selecting the appropriate 
conditions for that day would depend on what you are trying to learn 
from you simulation.

In general, this is true.  But remember that the radiant and visible 
fractions of internal gains are absorbed by surfaces and there may be 
a significant time lag before they actually become an HVAC load.
