Keep could refer to different things:
The system, in its entirety, is called "tBTC". The fungible Bitcoin-backed token is called "TBTC" to distinguish it from the rest of the project. This approach is also reflected in the Ethereum ERC-20 token contract. Further discussion can be found in the relevant Github issue.
You earn KEEP through fees and 200,000,000 KEEPs (20% of the token supply) will be distributed through the stakedrop. How much you will earn will depend on the amount of KEEP and/or ETH you stake and how much other people will stake. More information in Stakedrop.
You have to stake your ETH for the length of at least one tBTC deposit. That could be as short as a week or as long as 6 months.
Depends on how much ETH has been staked across the system. If you're the only one, you get most of the KEEP per reward period. Source: Matt Luongo (Keep CEO) on Discord.
Monthly in the beneficiary address.
Over 2 years, the minimum amount to stake is lowered periodically using a uniform stepwise function, starting at 100k KEEP and eventually ending at 10k KEEP. See How do we stake? for the detailed schedule.
