I "think" that part of the reason for changing between more focus points or less point is whether or not your subject is moving. If they are not moving too much, then use fewer focus points. If they are alot, like an action shot, then use more points. If your subject is stationary, then use the minimum number of focal points.

Not correct. One should select the number of focus points based on the size of your target relative to the frame.

e.g. The face of a basketball player, if that is where you have placed you center point, and that face is not filling the frame, and you wish to maintain tracking on that face, a fewer number of focus points would make more sense.
