Josef Koudelka doesn't spend more than a few months at the same place. For him, being constantly on the move is a requirement "to see, and if I stay longer I become blind".
Other photographers seem to thrive in relatively confined spaces, like Bill Brandt.
Similarly, some photographers need to be shooting all the time and feel depressed when they don't have a camera on their hands. Others are fine with taking photography trips twice or three times a year.
In the end, I think there's no right or wrong way to do it, your photography is just a reflection of who you are.
