I've heard anything ranging from .5 lbs to 1 lb of muscle can be gained per week. I'm not sure if there's a definite scientific answer, but i'd pick somewhere in the middle and say if you gain any more than that it's going to be fat.

depends on so much it isn't even funny. Some people struggle like hell for a pound a week, others can do it no sweat (those others are gonna usually be beginners, or people bulking while gainig fat too, or people on cycles, etc.)
