I am just wondering what the standards are for how much romex to feed into the gang box. And once you have that length, how much of the yellow outer sheathing should be stripped back?

I thought this would be easy to find but a couple of searches didn't yield an answer.

You should have at least 6" free conductor at any outlet box. The sheath length in the box should be at least ¼" while most folks will leave longer since it's easier to strip that way.
