How much reading and writing are expected will depend on the professor, the subject, and course format. I'd definitely suggest being more thorough in online classes, since you aren't getting that in-class instruction. Some professors rely on textbooks for material and test questions, and some have no text at all. I've had all kinds of professors and course formats, and I would say, just do what you have to in order to understand and retain the information, don't overdo it if you find a subject easy, and likewise don't slack off if you think you'll be able to remember things.
