That depends on fast the oil is leaking out from the V.C. gasket and how soon you plan to adjust the valve clearance. If it isn't leaking much and the valve adjustment is planned soon, might as well wait until you have your valves adjusted since the valve cover has to be removed then anyway.

How often should you change your brakes on a Honda accord?

When the pads reach the wear indicator, which you will hear as a squeal. Odd as it may seem, The rear brake pads will more than likely wear out before the front on your Accord. This is common on a Honda. How long they will last depends on how you drive, but expect to replace the rear pads at around 60,000 miles. The front should last 75,000 miles. But again, it depends on how and where you drive. When you hear the brakes squeal when stopping, replace them immediately or rotor damage will occur.
