That depends on his age/size. As for how often, I usually feed very young frogs every day/every other day while I feed older frogs just a few times a week.

Are the crickets small or large? That sounds fine to me although I don't know how big he is. There aren't usually exact rules for feeding frogs, you just have to go with what works . If he seems underweight, feed more. If he starts to gain a ton of weight, cut down on food.
