What's the best practice with respect to Ethernet cabling and switches? At what point do you cable a homerun instead of switch, upon switch, upon switch?

There are limits to how long a cable run can be. With a switch, the packets are fully regenerated so the limit applies only to the distances of the runs between the switches and other switches or switches and the attached devices.
