If the gravity doesn't change at all in 3 days, then it's ready to bottle or keg. If it decreases by a point or two, then wait another couple days and check gravity again. Repeat until the gravity stops changing. Then it's done.
Racking to secondary is not necessary. Skip it and go straight to bottle or keg as soon as you're sure fermentation is done.
