I want to get an idea of how many work hours a week does any senior executive put in, in a mid-size or large corporation, on a regular basis? Do they also have a 5 day work week? By senior management I mean people at positions like, VP,COO, or maybe a bit lower than those. I basically wanted to know if they have any work-life balance.

Every individual is different. I have worked at companies where having the upper level management in more than twice a week was considered incredible, and also (same company) another senior level management who built a custom gaming PC for his office, and spent all his time playing counter strike.
Then there are other places i've worked where the senior management was in every morning at 7, and left every night past 6. There is no cookie-cutter answer for you. It'll all depend on the individual in question's personal sense of responsibility and entitlement. If they're of the "i'm more important than you because i own the company" mindset, you won't see them often. But if they're of the "lead by example" or "it's up to me to make this place succeed, after all, i own the company" then seeing them all the time is to be expected.
