How often should an employee receive praise from his/her boss?
Grown-ups shouldn't need praise for doing what they've been hired to do. To me, if an employee does something like hand in a report to a supervisor, a simple "thank you" is fine (or maybe something like, "This looks good." - if, in fact, it DOES look good). That's simple courtesy, and if the boss hands the staff member something like a set of statistics, the staff member ought to say, "Thanks," or something like, "Thanks for getting these to me this soon," too. As for "praise", though - no. Employees aren't children. If they want/need praise they're most likely going to be bitterly disappointed in the work world (or in any world, for that matter). Respect and general appreciation for doing the job well is all anyone should need (and the appreciation can be demonstrated at review time). Respect should be shown all the time; and as far as I'm concerned, if a supervisor thought I was so childish that I wanted/needed praise, I'd see that as "lack of respect" for me, as an equal adult.
