A series of outlets

I was told if I run a series of outlets, say in the kitchen along the counter every 4 feet or so, that I only need to wire one GFCI and the rest that daisy chains from that can be regular outlets, is that true?

There must be two 20a circuits minimum. Yes if you connect the downstream receptacles to the load side only the first needs to be GFCI.

You should also alternate circuits, so that no two next to each other are on the same circuit. Very helpful if you have to plug in two waffle irons or something.

I prefer two circuts per counter section, which usually means alternating between "a" and "b" and "c".
