As in the title, i know you have to do 3 months seasonal work like fruit picking to extend your NZ WHV for another year right?

How many hours a day does this require.... 9-5 for 3 months?
How do you record this? or prove it?
Could you essentally work at a different place each day or do you have to stick at one place for a week or so?

thanks

As far as I know, the second year WHV is an Australia-only thing. Although as a UK-citizen, you can simply get a 23-month visa for New Zealand, without any other requirements (other than a medical examination). See here.

In Australia, there's a form which your employers have to sign, or you can use pay slips or a few other things. See here for the details.
