There is a release schedule, There is a feature freeze at a certain point
beforehand (~ 1 month?) after which no new features go in. Major features
are put into trunk as early as possible to allow for full development time
http://wordpress.org/about/roadmap/ explains the dates for future releases
and gives a short writeup.
As for the features that are chosen, They're mainly the short-list
candidates from core devs who say "I want to implement this", then theres
people coming along on trac and saying "I like this feature, So i've
written a patch, What do you guys think?". Quite often core devs will
choose a feature they feel like doing according to something that was
raised on a mailing list, or the ideas tracker:
http://wordpress.org/extend/ideas/ or Just some functionality they saw in
another product which would go well in WP..
This is all an AFAIK :)
