Re: character head/neck UVing question.....please

I usually attach the neck to the head wherever possible. It really depends on the optimal UV layout and how the geometry is built. There is no "correct" solution really. You want as few seams as possible, but don't do it at the expense of excessive warping or weirdness.
Even if you do split it off, I'd say it's best to do around the base of the jaw, since that's hardly ever seen, and anyway, colours around those areas are usually pretty uniform anyway, so it's easy to paint over and hide the seams.
