Maitenance Procedures

233 100+
I was hoping to gain information/confirmations on a few database maintenance procedures. Thanks in advance.

1. If there is no space available within the database, with auto grow set to true, is there much of a performance hit for this? My thoughts were that the database will have to auto grow frequently given several inserts are performed daily.
2. Shrink database/data file is performed to release unused pages in the database back to the operating system? Is there any other benefit to shrinking a database/date file if physical disc space is not an issue?
3. What reasons might someone limit the size of a database besides to prevent the physical disc to become full?
4. I am curious as to what others might recommend for standard database maintenance procedures.
