For example, if you make an event in Google Calendar or Yahoo Calendar, do you make the notification with 1 hour, 2 hours, a day before or at the same time? I know it depends on the event, but I ask as general practice...

There's no best practice. If you're scheduling a phone call you'll need 5-minute warning. If you're scheduling a meeting across town you'll need to be reminded an hour prior to it.
And it doesn't matter whether you're using an online calendar or a calendar on your phone/computer. Scheduling principles are universal.
