Collinite 476 is quite durable so applying every month would be a waste in my opinion. You would wax the car (once or twice a year depending on durability) then in between use a QD for LSP top up....

When last year did you wax it with Collinite 476 as it should probably be gone by now? Beading would not be as strong as before. Have you used anything like fairy liquid which might form a film on...

CP can be used as an AIO and so DSW can sit happily on CP (much like EGP sits on top of SRP). Have seen 5 or so months of protection before I took it off to try Autoglym.
