Looks like a jade plant - Crassula ovata

I agree It does look like Crassula ovata. I hope you are growing it in a container with drainage holes.

Likes lots of light, can take full sun nicely. It grows outdoors here in my area, actively growing when temps are cooler, but it stays evergreen year round. It undergoes reddish color when very cold stressed, but it can endure it, as long as kept dry as much as possible. Every leaf is a good potential leaf cutting, so if you need to grow more, just pluck away a healthy one, let it callus a bit and lay on top of a well draining media.

This plant has a shallow root system, so it does not need huge container, you will just adjust container size as needed. As to when, it depends on how your plant grows. During Fall or in early Spring, it may start some leaf dropping, leaves turning yellow then drying off. It is a normal cycle for it as it adjusts to the changing seasons. Do not be tempted to overwater, just let the plant finish that cycle. As long as the main stem is staying firm and you see new leaf growth coming at the tips or anywhere up and down the stem or at its branches, then your plant is just in a growing phase.

Here is mine:

I also have a little one similar to the size you have right now:

It can also make some nice blooms, not always but it can:
