I have only ever seen them flown Seperate.  That way you still have individual control over all the trusses.

Usually attachted to the truss the pick comes from. IE if it's the cable loom from the downstage (IE "front"), then it's attached to the downstage, but the end of the pick is a seperate point.

Really this depends on the specific gig. We've done cable bridges from the downstage to the mid to the upstage for some. It all depends on the weight, location of the main trusses, where the cables need to end up, and if the client doesn't want them to be seen.
