Why should you slowly increase calories when transitioning from cut to bulk?

I'm starting a bulk after a long cut and plan on eating a surplus of 300-500 calories. I was reading through older posts and saw a lot of comments saying that you should slowly increase cals by 200 every week. I was thinking I could just eat around maintenance for a couple weeks and then...

Calories during a deload

When bulking, should calories be reduced to maintenance during a deload? My reasoning being that there is less stimulus and also less calorie burn so any weight gained during a deload week is more likely to be fat rather than muscle?

I don't use salt very much. But when I do, it's salt from a trace mineral block that I place out for deer to lick. I knock off chunks of the salt and save it before putting it out for the deer to lick. I don't take any salt from the block once deer have licked it. Let's hear your salty stories.

At the moment I’m ~145lb at 5’7 or 5’8, I eat 3 meals everyday (breakfast, lunch, dinner), which by itself adds up to 2800-3000 calories and I don’t think I’m burning anything beyond 100-150 calories daily unless it’s a cardio day where I’d burn ~200 calories. But, I’m wondering if it’d be...

When bulking do you need to be at a constant surplus or just a daily surplus?

When eating at a caloric surplus for bulking are you supposed to constantly be at a surplus through out the day, as in every time I eat or snack I should be putting myself ahead of the calories I've burned so far? Or are you just meant to be at a surplus by the day's end?
