It doesn't go by base-for force plays, you only have to touch the base. You tag the player on a steal, or when nobody is behind the player.

How long must a player hold onto a ball after he has tagged out a runner?

There is no set time a player must hold on to a ball after catching either a batted or a thrown ball - the rule only states that he must maintain "control" of the ball. If the umpire rules that a fielder has control of the ball and then tagged a runner that was off-base, that runner is instantly 'Out' and the fielder need not maintain control of the ball after that. He can immediately throw the ball elsewhere, or even drop it, and the runner would still be out.
