How do you maintain your water heater?

I live in a home with a water softener, and I'm not sure how often/what kind of maintenance I'm supposed to be doing with my water heater, if at all. I've not noticed anything detrimental in the quality of water in my house, but we have lived there for about 3 years and have never done anything with it.
It's located in the garage, and when I was cleaning out the garage last night, I noticed that there was what I'm assuming were some salt deposits on the outside of the tank - is this normal?
It's a gas water heater, if that makes a difference.
