It depends a lot on the culture. Not just the country, but the local culture of business, location, office, & most of all boss.
I work in New Zealand. Here people are rather informal. In our engineering office, we tend to see each other several times a day, so regular formal catch-up meetings are not common, unless the boss wants one for some reason.
Different people have different communication styles. With my previous boss, I sent an email if I thought he needed to know something. My new boss is very aural/oral. He does not read emails more than a few lines & is much happier if you just tell him stuff & he likes it to be brief & not detailed.
We do tend to work on longer-term things. Maybe less need to report frequently.
So, personal culture.
maybe then the culture of the country.
Other people may have different circumstances.
