This question cannot really be answered by anyone but yourself. You need to test different gemming to see how you feel, there is no magic number of Spirit that will be perfect for everyone.
No... maybe if ur only doing normals and LFR you can stop at 10k or something, but if you're doing heroics you will be forced to be healing virtually non-stop... even though crit is very strong for regen compared to other healers, spirit will still be top priority for a long time.

Do more damage/eminence healing and/or have your group bring fewer healers.
In my experience that is the way to adjust my play to different fights/comps. As more mana is available due to multiple hymns, mana tides, etc, I find ramping up my damage output will readily allow me to burn off the extra.
LFR is mostly about how hard are the healers in the group working, sometimes you end up carrying some undergeared/baddies or run into the special snowflakes that que as healer and then just dps and have to work your tail off, others you can coast because there's a heroic geared disc priest putting out stupid numbers...
You shouldn't judge your mana needs by normal-mode raids and certainly never by LFR unless of course that's all you plan on doing.
In general, if you're ending a each fight with lots of excess mana, you should convert that into throughput wherever possible.
Also, try using less healers or tell the other healer to help dps as a healer until you actually need some help ;)
