If you release a player who has a guaranteed contract, with money owed for4the rest of one year and the next, does he get that money in one lump sum check,or does he continue to get paychecks as though he were still on the team (twice monthly, I believe)?

I'm pretty sure it's up to the club. They can pay it as a lump sum or continue to pay out over the life of the deal. I believe buyouts are paid in a lump sum.

And yes, twice monthly is the pay schedule from April through September.
