I have over 10 SD cards without any issues so far and I'm planning to buy a new camera but it uses compactflash.

What are the chances of getting a corupted card?

And how do they get corrupted? Before, during, or after usage? What are the factors?

Is it better to buy a big card and never remove it or buy several cards and switch constantly.

Worst things I'd never want to see are the files getting lost after use, card being unable to record right before use, and files cannot be retrieved.

Do some of you rotate cameras during service?

CF cards are no more likely to have problems than the SD cards you're using now. I'd say that, whatever you're doing with your SD cards, keep doing it with CF cards and you'll probably have similar results.
