Battery Selector Switch - proper use

I have a Perko 2 battery selector switch on our 27' ODay. I was just wondering how others use this handy device:

-Do you start your engine with both batteries?

-Do you run the engine with both batteries selected so it will charge (or will both batteries charge even if only one is selected)?

-While sailing, or not using shore power, do you use just one battery?

-And, do you use battery 1 or battery 2 for individual purposes?

Looking forward to your input.
