how long can you store a full magazine? Will the springs ever get weak? Is there a general rule of thumb?

As long as you want. I have personally seen a mag that was left loaded more than 40 years function perfectly (not M16 mag). It is the number of cycles, not leaving them loaded that affects the spring the most. A bigger concern than spring fatigue would be corrosion of the spring and ammo, accumulation of dirt.
