I made my first Hefe last Friday (nov 9th). How long do I let it ferment? Also how long do I let it bottle for?

Till you get consistent hydrometer readings a few days apart. Check your gravity with a hydrometer after about 10-14 days and in a few days check again if the same readings then you should be ok to bottle then.

Probably take about 2 weeks to carbonate. I Use 1oz of sugar per gallon of beer being bottled. It will give you about 2.5 volumes of co2. I use that as my standard.
