How often does your toddler pee?

My 19 mo. old has started using the potty, so I decided no more diapers. He was naked all day yesterday, peed in the potty twice, pooped once, and had one pee accident. Today, he's been awake for 6 hours and has only peed twice-- once 4 hours ago and once just now. Shouldn't he pee more than that? How can I potty train when I only get 3-4 opportunities a day?
I've never given him juice but I'm thinking about buying some to get more liquids in him. Right now he nurses several (8? 10?) times a day, gets 6 oz. of soymilk at night (daddy does the bedtime thing with him), and drinks water whenever he wants from a KK with a sports top.
Would I be starting a bad habit if I give him diluted juice while we potty train?
