As far as the long period of time between the Enterprise-C and the Enterprise-D, that could be a result of Starfleet wanting to honor the loss of that ship and its crew for awhile before launching her successor (even so, Starfleet may have announced early on that the Enterprise name would eventually continue with a new ship of the then only proposed Galaxy-class).
IIRC, that is the reason why there was such a huge gap between ships. And with the Galaxy-class on the way, why not make the Enterprise one of Starfleet's bigger and badder vessels?
