Is it better to have one large payment per month or several small ones?
I know to consider interest rates but I wondered if several on-time payments per month would have a higher positive affect on my credit score than one larger on-time payment.

Just the one payment when the bill comes in so you can get it to the credit card processing center by the due date.  If you make a bunch of small payments in a month, you will mess up the usage rate and that can mess with your credit score.  Please re-read the articles this site provides so you can better understand that.
