I'm going to China for three weeks in September, on my longest international trip ever. This is my first time in Asia and I'd really like to hear about cultural quirks, things I must do, words to learn, etc. Thanks.

#1: lose the guide book.
#2: travel light. Most hotels here provide toothbrushes/paste, soap, shampoo, etc. They even provide house shoes!  
#3: expect nothing, take in everything.
#4: Watch what everyone else does, and then don't do it.
#5: Basic courtesy vocab: xie-xie (she-ay she-ay) - thank you. Qing wen (tshing when) - Please, may I ask? Mai da (m-eye dah) - the bill please. Hui shuo ying wen ma? (hway shwoh ying when mah?) - Can you speak English? Bu hao yi si (boo how yee sil - said as one word) - I'm sorry/excuse me.
Travel with friends, possibly those who live in country. If you come to Wuhan, I'll be more than happy to show you around. Welcome!
Final note: Mid Autumn Festival is in the first week of September and National Holiday is the first week in October. Expect heavy travel traffic then. You may/may not be able to buy (plane or, especially train) tickets around those times... because everything will be sold out, not because nobody likes you or wants you to travel.
Wish you the very best!  
The journey IS the destination!
