Usually once a month is good for giving your hedgehog a bath. Some hedgies really like getting baths and have fun playing in the water. Just make sure the temperature of the water is what you would use for a baby- you don't want the water to be too hot. And make sure your hedgie is dry before putting him back in his cage.
With cleaning the cage, it does depend on the hedgehog. Some hedgies are messy while others are not. Cages should be cleaned at least once a week, with spot cleaning daily. But if you have a particularly messy hedgie, you may need to clean more often.
Enjoy getting to know your new little guy!
