Beginner questions

My Lunette Diana (2) arrived! Just a couple of noob questions:
1) Should I boil it straight out of the box, or will a warm water wash suffice?
2) gosh it's big! I had a quick look at the folds but is there a concesus that one fold is more manageable than the others, or is it individual taste?
3) is there a rule of thumb for often I should check it on my first cycle? I don't really wanna try taking out at work, which means waitig at least four hours...but I don't want to leak either :s

Any other newbie advice would be appreciated!!
