A good rule of thumb is to bench about what you snatch. It's likely you are benching significantly more than that, so don't bother with it for a while.
I have never heard of this before, can u explain why?

Just enough evidence to see there isn't anything gain from benching once it surpasses the snatch, if there is anything to be gained from benching at all.3-4 sets one a week, should be enough to maintain your bench strength. If you really feel it is beneficial to increase the bench, then 4-6 sets twice a week should get it moving. Just remember that increasing the volume of one lift will require decreasing the volume of one or more other lifts.
