A few questions about dividends . . .

Do all companies pay dividends at the same time(ish)? Generally they pay quarterly? If not, how often and when? Also, what are the start and end dates of each quarter?

What factors influence how a company sets its dividends?

Are dividends taxable? (I know very little about taxes--I am days away from becoming an independant).
