first of all, you need to use your real name. Not "skabo". So please change it asap.
It seems like you have very general questions about steadicam, so I guess you have no or limited knowledge of how it works?
Search the forums, and you'll find lots of interesting stuff on its history and how it works.
1) a weight of a Steadicam can vary a lot. It's all to do with what type of system you have and what type of camera you're operating
2) how long a person can carry it again depends on the weight of the camera. But lets say up to 1 hour. This doesn't happen in fiction though. Only on tv, like music shows and sporting events.
3) And the operators who work a lot, usually have their own gear. But one can rent sometimes also.

But lets say up to 1 hour
I think I need to step into your world, a dream job for me is when I'm only wearing my rig for an hour . . . .LOL . . .
Most days, rehearsal alone is 2-3hr's, the Emmy's are 4 Hr's Straight, But then again I'm not flying an F-900 with all the bells and whistles, Just a studio camera and all the Triax or Fiber . . . .
Oh and for the record, I set a personal record, which I'm not proud of BTW, of 15 Hr. in my vest for a TV show that, if it comes back, my shooting duties will change along with the rate . . .LOL . . .
All the best
And to you Fernando from Argentina, if it's your passion and obsession for some . . .?!?! you will do just fine because everyday your are excited to go to work and you'll be loving what you do.
