2012 Honda CR-V - Storage Questions

My daughter is off to college and her 2012 Honda CRV with 46K miles is just resting the the garage. How often should I take it for a drive to avoid any problems with the CRV? Should it be driven weekly, semi weekly, monthly? Thanks

Take it to work or shopping once a week just so it doesn’t sit around letting the battery go flat and the gas go bad.

Thanks for your thoughts. I was thinking a drive every week or toe but wanted to confirm

I did the same for my sister’s car when she went off to school.
