Usually, the validity of the visa is 1-year (1-year multiple), 180 days (Double Entry) or 90 days (Single Entry) from the date of issue. If you intend to apply for double entry visa, please remember that your second entry can be no later than 180 days from the date your visa was issued!
The duration of stay of a "F" visa is usually 60 days, which means the holder of the visa may stay in China for up to 60 days from the date of entry. The visa officer may extend the Duration of Stay if the applicant needs and requests a stay in China for more than 60 days, upto 90 day, but you need to justify your longer stay.
