Good question, unfortunately I don't know either. I have only recieved notices, once a week, via email, stating no alerts

You get weekly checks for score changes. And more regular checks for certain events that you set in the settings.
You do not get an alert immediately on the same day as new information appears on your credit report. It usually comes between 1 and 3 days later.
It is great for monitoring changes to your score over time and gives a real FICO. My score fluctuates frequently since I have a handful of current credit cards and installment loans. Sometimes I see alerts or score updates every week... if my balances aren't changing much then I might only see one update for the whole month. It depends on your credit report activity.
