Details and aftermath of a cut throat

I'm writing a pseudo-medieval fantasy where there is a flashback of a girl getting her throat cut. She is entirely trusting of the murderer up until the second before he kills her, so he manages to grab her without trouble. He would know how to cut the throat properly (i.e. not hitting the windpipe) so, with that in mind ...

- How much blood would splatter onto her clothes?
- When he lets her go and she falls to the ground, if the cut is deep enough, would she be unconscious?
- How long would it take her to die?
- For how long would she keep bleeding?
