Is there any dos and don'ts when it comes to models, regarding size. I'm coding a small site at the moment. The site only needs 4 or 5 methods to get all the sql-info needed. So do I put all methods in the same model or do I put them in separate models?

Usually a model relates to a database table or a grouping of related database tables. So if the methods query the same table, then yes by all means put them in the same model. If not I would just add several different models. You never know when you might want to expand on the functionality.
