Cv- how much? how often?!

Doing franky's 5x5, trying to eat like a horse to put as much on as pos. But obv dont wana put on too much fat. How often should i do cv? Am i rite in saying i shouldnt do cv on or before the day i work my legs? Should i be looking to do light intensity (60-70%) hr max for thirty to forty minutes? Or a harder paced twenty minutes. I feel more tired and sweat more after the twenty minutes but i know this will not burn as much fat. Yet it burns more calories doesnt it? Is this a bad thing? I heard someone say running is bad because it takes longer for the legs to recover then when cycling for example? Is this true?
I know theres loads of questions here but any help would be great!

    Say twice a week... SHort HITT sessions of maybe 10-20 minutes. If you already play sports though and stuff then don't even worry about it.
