I understand that waiting is better and wasn't planning on keggin until about week 4, so that way it could have another week or two after than to carbonate properly, I was just wondering how long fermentation generally last?

I assume it's different for lagers? But even so, the kit I purchased came with a lagering yeast.

I plan on starting my second batch before I keg my first so that by the time I'm sad because I'm out of my first batch, I'll be about ready to crack open my second and keg my third.

Short answer is

it last till done....not trying to be an ass, but really that is the best answer.
and don't listen to the airlock, take a gravity reading. Same reading 3 days in a row, your finished.
