Kubuntu is not really a derivative distro. It is just Ubuntu with KDE on top. Thus Kubuntu will release at the same time and have the same security cycle (18 months).

kubuntu release cycle

Ubuntu can release nicely every 6 months in sync with Gnome but Kubuntu will take KDE releases into account when releasing. This time around it's perfectly timed and we just had time to get 3.4 ready for release but in the future we might need to e.g. delay a little to wait for a KDE release shortly after an Ubuntu release.
