Generally speaking , 14 ga wire , 15 amp circuit for lighting , 12 ga wire 20amp circuit for receptacles . Nothing says you can't run 12 ga for the lighting and have it on a 15amp breaker , unless your city has reg's against that for some silly reason.
As for subs on a dedicated line , that depends on how much power everything is drawing . If you can pull the additional circuits over without starving the rest of your house , why not? just make sure you are doing everything correctly and up to code .
It was like that when I got here
