It’s appropriate to cut a release whenever, since that’s what go
upstream claims :).

As for debian/watch, I currently leave it empty, and was planning to
address this by having a thing that watches git repositories and informs
us of new commits, ideally building all affected packages and just
automatically updating the package if everything still compiles and
tests okay.

though it’s unlikely that I’ll get around to doing that anytime soon (so
you’re welcome to tackle any of these).

Best regards,
