switch one at a time. necks are supposed to be kept with tension on them at all times.

let me google for a link.

here you go! hope this helps.

if the all strings are being changed at the same time the tension on the neck will be gone and it could bent. you don't wanna have that i guess =P

correct. necks are designed to be kept at tension at all times. guitars are made of wood, sooner or later, they all need work. but no reason to push your luck, keep the tension constant (except tune down a tone if storing for a long time), in the case when not playing, avoid drastic conditions, or rapid changes in temperature and humidity, good practices for the long term health of your instrument.
