Length of time for bulking depends on personal preference. For me, I stop my "bulk" when I either hit the desired weight that I was striving for or my body fat % goes above 15-16%. ( My BF% is usually between 8-10%).
When you should start cutting will all depend on how much body fat you put on in your "bulk", and how long it takes you to lose it. Again this is subjective person to person and something that you will have to figure out in regards to how your body reacts to diet, training, etc. For me, I usually stop any "bulking" around mid April to get into the summer look that you want. But, I now my body, you just have to learn yours.

Around 1-2 lbs per week (+when bulking, -when cutting)... use that to figure out how much weight you wanna gain then lose, and then how long it will take.
