It seems like I have an issue with generating coins.  Based on the current difficulty and my hashes/sec (about 4300khash/s), I should be generating a block about once a week.
This seemed to work for the first block, but since then, it has behaved differently.  Here is the dates I generated.

9/01/2010 (first block I generated)
9/14/2010 (a little longer than expected, but not too bad)
9/14/2010 (about 80 blocks after the last one)
9/15/2010 (about 60 blocks after the last one)
9/16/2010 (about 250 blocks after the last one)

The last three seem way too frequent.  I was wondering if the difficulty suddenly decreased, or if their might be some issue.  Not that I am complaining about generating so many, it just seems like this is quite a bit more frequent than I should be generating.  Has anyone else had this issue recently?

It's pretty random. Now you can generate some and don't have even one in 1-2 months. Who knows. It's a question of luck. Take a look at this thread. That's the guy whose luck you drain.

how does someone actually find out if he has generated a block? will one just see 50 bitcoins suddenly in the account or how does it work?

First you will see "Generated 0.00" and then, after 120 confirmations you will see "Generated 50.00" or like that.
