20 seconds is usually enough.  Burst or not to burst? Try both and see what works best with your can of green gas.  For best results read the directions on the can.

Understood.  Usually you can hear when the gas flow has stopped and the mag is full also.

When you fill, try putting your ear next to the can of GG. You'll hear gas leaving the can and filling the mag, and it'll stop when the mag is full of gas.

Make sure you are pushing it straight in. The angled mag end can throw you off a bit.

put a little oil on the valve before attempting to fill it.
warm the fill can in your pocket first
You can not overfill it
