How often does gmail sync on the G1?

 I am used to Outlook Express where I can set the interval for how
often my PC checks for new emails. I can't find an adjustable variable
for gmail on my phone or the website- just an "autosync" option. (I'd
like to check once every hour)

Does the phone notify me, when set on auto, as soon as an email comes

Does it actively check with the server every minute or something-
thereby running down a lot more battery power?

Are there any apps to set the interval for email checking?

 It is pushed from the server, not polled by the client, so there's no
fundamental notion of a sync interval. The "only" cost of the system
is that of keeping a TCP socket open, which is reasonably low.

3) is there any GTalk API documents?
