The Turtles have appeared with Usagi in several stories and were featured heavily in the Shades of Green storyline, but their appearances alongside Usagi are definitely the exception...not the norm.

I believe Usagi is published every 1.5 months, but there are more knowledgable people here who will no doubt correct me.

Usagi comes out about 9 or 10 times a year, depending upon how many issues I can crank out during that time. There is also one, or sometimes two, book collections each year. The next collection is scheduled for the first or second week of July for the trade paperback, and the end of July for the hard cover.

Just to add to Shaxper's reply, Stan introduced a "version" of the TMNT in UY Vol 2 #1-3. My theory is that this was in celebration of the move to Mirage Studios and I think I remember Stan saying he wanted to do a storyline with Usagi and the TMNT previously. He re-invented the Turtles (and Splinter) so that they could fit better in UY continuity. Obviously, since they appeared in the regular UY series, it's a safe bet to say that this version of the TMNT are in fact a part of normal UY continuty. Now, most likely they won't appear again, at least not for a really long time. The TMNT, while in the UY Universe, are not part of mainstream continuity. Usagi will probably appear in future TMNT cartoon episodes however.

On the other hand, Stan Sakai and TMNT-creator Peter Laird are really good friends and a collaboration between the two on an additional storyline is most likely inevitable. As a kid I often dreamed of an Eastman/Laird/Sakai TMNT/Usagi crossover in the same spirit as the TMNT/Cerebus wth Dave Sim as guest artist crossover from TMNT #8.

You're absolutely right, they are extremely similar to the mainstream Turtles, but my take was they were modified slightly to allow them to fit better into UY continuity. Artistic license.
