It should be done every two years as they tend to collect water over time but if you're on lease and don't plan on keeping then 3 years shouldn't be an issue.

However, it is safer and if it lets you sleep better at night and put your mind at ease, I'd say go for it.

This is an extreme maintenance schedule if you plan to keep for as long as possible.

I personally do it every spring, but that's just me.
Generally every 2 years is a good rule of thumb, but may vary depending on how your pedals feel.
Brake pedal feel is very important...you don't want air bubbles to build up in the brake lines which will make your pedal feel like stepping on sponge, and you're basically pumping air with no brakes.
If it's for safety, you should do it more often as a preventive maintenance.

If you're not racing the car, and you're not in the habit of leaving your brake system open for periods of time, you can go quite some time without changing brake fluid. Its probably one of the most neglected services, and rarely does harm come of it. Most customers only perform the service when its required (new caliper, brake line, a leak, etc).

Keep it sealed, and you probably won't need to service it until you need to change a caliper.
