Every 2nd word whould be an adlib so things dont get cluttered.
Every word only works occasionally.
Less than that and your sound wont be modern enough to be relevant.

They usually sit in freqiencies that are associated with midrange.

generally speaking you want adlibs to have less 'presence' so as to not drown out the leads, cutting in the high mids is a place to start. depending on the track and style/effect you're going for.
