Connect every X days, tells the client how often you are connected to the internet. If you have an always on connection you should set it low, 0.1 days for example.

Additional work buffer X days is how much work you want to keep on hand to avoid going dry during a network or project problem. This is much more subjective. I generally recommend how long you would expect a local outage to last; 3-4 days will cover a long weekend.
