Well I would think the more comments, the more content and therefore the higher chance of getting the more so called love from Google as you mentioned.
However, as you may know there are many other factors that play an important role, such as backlinks.

In my opinion more comments on your blogs will only cause more frequent robots crawling.
The love from Google is another separate issue.

More crawling sounds right. To attribute more to it than that wouldn't make sense. Comments by themselves are not votes. How often do bloggers comment on other blogs that they would never for a moment think of linking to? All the time.

I think the more comments your blog receives, the more it will be crawled because the comments are additional content.
I am not sure if that will help you to rank higher. Ranking higher might be determined more by the quality of your blog posts.

if they gave you a benefit for every new comment, then that would mean promoting all those blogs clogged up with viagra spam.

Legit comments are regular, good content. If you show the SEs your site is buzzing with activity and thus providing a good user experience, I;m sure you'll get rewarded for that somehow.
