I'm guessing you progress at different levels for different exercise, but as a (very) general rule of thumb, would it be reasonable to add 10lbs a month with bench presses, and maybe more like 20 with squats?

I would suggest the rule of thumb here is a dangerous guide.
Why, because it may work for one or two iterations, but by the third iteration if you have added 60lbs to your squats in 3 months it may be way too much.
This is something you need to listen to what your body is telling you and also a trainer.
