I operated for a period of 6 months running 24/7 before I got tired of it and turned it off. I was covering the entire metro area. I took calls on a "request line" and nobody gave me a second look.
The key is to "sound" like any other commercial station. Don't interfere with any other stations, or do anything to get complaints (like swearing on the air or transmitting all over the neighbors TV.)
I have a friend who ran a 1000 Watt pirate station for over 2 years; Sold advertising and even became an affiliate of Westwood One radio network, broadcasting "American Top 40" and other programs from Westwood One. They covered High School sports games and generally had all of the trimmings of a "real" radio station.
One of the industry publications caught wind of this illegal broadcast and wrote an article about it. Shortly after, the FCC gave them a "Cease and Decist" order. No fines, no equipment seizure, no court, jail or anything else.
As long as you are reasonable on the air, chances are that you will never get in trouble, even if you DO get "busted".
