Is it recommended to turn your bottles a quarter turn once a month or so?

I have never done it. My bottles are on racks in the cellar, and I generally don't mess with them.

I would rather have the sediment compact into one area.

I never turn mine. I leave them in a cool dark place and have had no problem. I filter my wine aswell, so sediment is not to much of a problem.

Riddling wine is usually reserved for campaigns to concentrate the yeast for removal.

Is there a temp range that you should store? I have mine in the garage. The temp varies from 45-55 degrees. If I keep it in the basement, it'll be around 65-70.

Ideally, you'd store it at 55 degrees or so. But you want to avoid temperature fluctuations. If the temperature fluctuates there, the basement is the best choice (assuming it's a dark place with a stable temperature).
