> 3.       how does bind count number of nodes in zonestatus ?(Mine is 5)

The number of nodes in the zone database that have data (not counting
NSEC3 nodes).  In your case: example.com, ns.example.com, sub.example.com,
ns.sub.example.com, and www.example.com makes five.

The next time the zone keys are scheduled to be refreshed.  At that
time, named will perform the equivalent of "rndc loadkeys" on itself
to see whether it needs to make any changes to the DNSKEY rrset.

The next RRSIG that's scheduled to be refreshed.

I don't know of any detailed guides I can point you to at this time.
However, ISC provides a thorough training course on the subject; see

has guidance about scheduling key rollovers that you may find useful.
