How often should I wind my clock?

It depends on the clock. Most clocks need to be wound once per week, but some older clocks need to be wound daily. Anniversary or 400 day clocks are designed to be wound once per year (hence the name), but they really should be wound every 4-6 months to maintain accuracy. Some modern Korean and 31 day clocks need to be wound once per month. There are also some older clocks with 2 winding holes that need to be wound once per month. Some clocks need to be wound every 2 weeks.

Should I periodically lubricate my clock movement myself?

This is not recommended because clocks require specially formulated lubricants. NEVER use any sort of spray lubrication such as WD40. While WD-40 is a great product, it's not designed for clocks and will do more harm than good.
