Hi,

The ribosome needs at least 30nt to be able to bind the RNA. So the SD
sequence by itself is not suffisiant.

About the space between two ribosomes, its depend on your gene
expression, if the gene is highly expressed, then the ribosomes follow
each other. There is no general rules about that. Its also depend on
the Biais codon usage of your gene.
SOme RNA carry only one or two ribosomes, some carry more than 50!
