since I'm planning to start contributing to Emacs, and I don't want to
break something, I'd like to learn which branches are exactly for what
and what should I do (assuming I will get write access at some point) -
for instance, should I create small branches for my patches?  Should
they be branched from master?

I think right now almost all new features and bug fixed are using branch 
emacs-25, AFAIK once  emacs-25 is considered stable enough it is merged with 
master branch.
Is there any document explaining this things?  If not, I'd be happy to
write one (once I know that myself).


some time ago Nicolas Petton send a url for a new website for emacs
may be he added some info about this. Meanwhile I suggest you to take a look 
at the mailing list archive to see how it went for others. 


I myself struggled with this same situation where there is not an easy intro for 
new developers.
