She burps after each feeding but will still get them! No she does not spit up every time. It just scares me when she does. I think the times she has its been due to too much milk too fast.

Yeah its probably your milk coming out really fast that she can't keep up with try feeding her a bit more up my lil guy would kinda do that so when I would hear him gulping really fast ill lift him more up so it goes down good

Both are completely normal. My little one gets the hiccups all the time. She had them constantly while I was pregnant. Some babies just spit up. Its very common and still can happen regardless if they burp or not. There's no need to be concerned unless baby isn't gaining weight, it becomes violent (more like vomiting), or if it appears to cause pain.

My kids all have gotten the hiccups at random times, not necessarily after feeding...  but - I get them alot too so I figured it's genetic for my kiddos!  During growth spurts babies seem to 'cluster' feed and it may feel like you are feeding them ALL THE TIME!  Every 90 min/45 min even...  With my kids when they were this young if they were fussy and we'd tried everything else...  it was kind of an, "I don't know, try feeding them again!"

Each kids spits up different amounts.  My 7 mo old seems to spit up every time after I feed her - or maybe it's just the times she gets me that I remember!  

With length of feedings - each baby is going to be different. With my first I'd go 15 min on each side and I would have to pull him off. With number two I would go about 10 min on each side. With baby number three she pulls off after 3/4 min on the first side and we have been done (both sides + burping between) by 8/9 min. I am shocked and want to offer her more but she continues to pull her self off or bites me.   I don't think there is a right or wrong amount of time. I have multiple friends who have fed their babies one breast at a feeding and their babies have been just fine!
