OpenOffice 4.1.3 runs well on Xubuntu 16.04 (I haven't tried any later version).

Allow a few extra seconds after closing your file and OpenOffice so there is time for the write buffers (hardware and software) to flush. The only time I have lost any content in an OO file is when there was a power failure.

OO is rock stable when it runs in a supporting environment. It is even more stable than AOO.

How much OO capacity does autorecovery take up? How much does autorecovery contribute to crashes?

One can stop the Save to permit AutoRecovery by entering 0 for the interval. It will be present in the code, whether invoked or not, so there is no saving in disk space to be made. It is my experience that autorecovery can cause loss of illustrations, whether in Writer or in Impress, so I keep it turned off for that reason - but I have extremely stable computers and save instinctively at frequent intervals.
