    You don't need to have fresh content to rank. If people are finding what they need then your site stats will reflect that. I have a site with 5 indexed pages that gets a ton of traffic and dominates the search results

    Lots of content is not key but yes it's important. You need quality and informative content to bring customers... Depending upon industry different site got different requirement. Some site daily posts hundreds of contents and some do occasional posting every week or later...

    No fix rules...

    There is not black or white. Some blogs HAVE to keep up with the recent news to hang in the top of Google, and some sites are still providing good valuable content that never get old.

    You don't need to keep your site constantly updated to rank well unless it's necessary, for example, if you are running a news site.

    Fresh content is not the key factor, but still very powerful thing. Actually old content that exists simply to generate pageviews does more harm for the web. Then again, good content that continually answers a user's query may remain fresh forever.

    It depends what your content is ! i always stick to the rule "Your blogs should be helpful as a tutorial or informative"
    It helps in getting some natural niche related backlinks as well as trust flow to your site, Social shares, keyword searches of your sitename.

    Also ranking for long tail keywords. also you will have a surprising change in Authority of your website.

    Updating "Quality" content is not a myth. but i recommend to use some infographics tool if possible or some explanatory videos :)
