This varies by state. Some states post one for each 1/10 of a mile. Others post mile markers by the 1/4 mile. Most however, especially along the interstate highway system mark only the miles, one per.

Approximately. Sometimes the terrain, a bridge and/or a river for example, will require that the mile marker be "kicked out" or moved a little to accomodate it.
