Your AC system is designed to run the clutch as long as needed and then shut off. The idea is to prevent icing of the Evaporator. In hot weather - 90 F and above, it should almost never cycle. Below 80 F, it should cycle on and off regularly. If it cycles quickly and/or isn't cooling off, have the system checked for leaks and recharged.
