After Edward decides to leave, how long is it before he comes back? Do I have to wait until Eclipse to hear from him again?

Edward reappears in "New Moon," when there is a misunderstanding that prompts him to want to confront the Volturi to end his own existence. Alice sees a vision in which Edward commits suicide, which prompts her and Bella to go find him in Italy. Keep reading, there's plenty more about Edward towards the end of the book and in the following books!

Edward leaves Bella in New Moon so she can be safe and away from the dangers of vampires. However, in the end Alice sees Bella jump off a cliff and thinks she kills herself which is when Edward decides to let everyone know he is a vampire so he can be killed. They reunite in the end though.

Edward is throughout the story however Edward in the flesh is only in the beginning of the story-- where he leaves her because of that whole Jasper wants to eat Bella ordeal-- and at the end where Bella goes to the Volturi to rescue him from killing himself. Any other sighting of Edward is a figment of Bella's imagination which she makes come to life when she endangers her own life.

Edward appers at the beginning of the book which you already know, and then after a while [a long one] he reappers! which is when the book becomes great again! lol

And if you havnt already read the book then boy are you going to hate Jacob in these book! I know I did and I cant speak for everyone, but plenty of the people I have to talk to HATE jacob during this book and most of the rest of it!

Edward comes back for quite a few chapters, they are pretty intense with the volturi around.  Bella has a very close call with being a human and all, and by the movie trailer i just saw on E! news, the movie is not like the movie.

Technically he does come back,
Bella goes to him and tries to stop him from extincting himself.
But then they fly back to Forks together and he is back in his home and w/ bella
