sugar can go in any time during the boil, it doesn't make a difference

Not true. You can put it in at any time, but you should account for the change in gravity when planning your hop additions, as gravity affects the IBUs drawn from hops.

On mine, I added the sugar to the primary. Waited until the ferment was JUST starting to die down then boiled the sugar in a little water, cooled and poured it in. That way, the yeast work through the maltose before getting the simpler sugar to chew on.

The cane sugar is late boil addition correct? Also, will a 2 liter starter be sufficient for this?
Wyeast 3711 is so aggressive I think you'd be fine with a 1 liter starter if you add the sugar to the primary 3-7 days after fermentation starts.

I do not have a scale. What is the best way to measure out my DME for a 1 liter starter? I guess I need about 3 ounces DME per liter water. Also, can I use corn sugar in place of cane sugar as my extra sugar addition?

3/4 of a cup is the recommended amount for 750mL of water (in a 1L flask)

Maybe so, but unless you're hopping with something above 6%AA, it won't result in a significant enough IBU difference to be discernible. Saisons traditionally use low AA hops, so personally, I'd say it's pretty safe to add sugar at any time. If in doubt, 10-5 minutes is plenty of time, of course.

How long is too long to leave beer on this yeast in the primary? I was under the impression that 3 weeks is usually the way to go but during a local brewers meeting I was told otherwise. I do not plan on using a secondary.
