how long to run simulation :- Till your residuals obtain a constant amplitude.

How to check residuals :- Solve->Monitor->Residuals set the values as per your requirement and tick plot in the option to get the residual plot.

I think once you can start getting smilar pattern in your residual plot you can stop
