I am trying to determine the frequency and usage of "giving" (=
generous) as a participial adjective. Has anyone heard "He's quite
giving," "He seems more giving than her," etc.?

Try looking into contemporary religious literature. I hear the phrase " a very giving person" quite frequently, and use it
myself often, when speaking of someone who gives generously of time and resources to the work of the church.
