Although still huge, the crowd isn't so bad after the opening week of Oktoberfest. You'll have a really hard time finding cheap accomodation during the fest, if money is low I'd just stay with your girlfriend. You can probably take a train in and out of the city, and the fest doesn't go too late into the evening so you won't be missing trains and such . . . well, anything can happen during Oktoberfest. Calm and casual drinkers become organizers of the beer bongs and underwear-ripping gangs, so who knows.
As far as etiquette, ummm, make sure you're wasted, that's about the only rule. Actually, you'll find some tamer tents during the mid weeks of the fest. I wouldn't worry about any do's and don'ts, just have a good time.
