I realy think this depends on the size of the house being modeled, how many roofs. ie dormers and porches it has. In the real world, a large expance of roof should have two downpipes, one at each end. Extentions from the house also needs it's own gutters and downpipes. usually a dormer roof would discharge from the roof onto the roof below with downpipe.
Most of these details need us to look up and see the real thing to get an idea of how things are. I sometimes put little tufts of static grass in my guttering as those little birds on the roof exrete seeds that germinate and block the flow. i've even seen small trees up there.

I use half round styrene strip for the gutters, and brass rod for the down pipes with brackets from Modelu https://www.modelu3d.co.uk/product/2901/
