If a widow with kids demands her kesubah, she loses further support. The property is advertised for 30 days and then sold and she is paid off. If she has no kids, is the property still advertised for 30 days?

The support given does not depend on whether she has children or not. It depends on whether he has children (who inherited him). The thirty day period was instituted in order to be especially careful in regards to the inheritance of orphans. When coming to collect from others (such as buyers) other time periods apply.
