it's how often the miner should ask the server for new work.  and you should set it to whatever your mining pool advises or just leave it at the default (which is 5 seconds, iirc) if solo mining or if your pool doesn't specify.

"new work" as in, the next transaction block?

This setting doesn't matters when you are mining in a pool with long polling support (like most current pools).
Otherwise set it to ~5 seconds.

i am with BTC Guild, and sometimes my miner says "work queue empty" for every 10 or so blocks that got accepted, so there is no way to avoid that from happening?
