I am currently experiencing the fuel cut-out symptoms to a T...couldn't have described it better myself. What is the most common cause of this?
cam follower wear resulting in HPFP and sometimes camshaft destruction.

Yikes...that sounds fairly serious. Is this something that will get worse with time? IE should I get my car to the dealer immediately? Or is it safe to keep driving for a week or two?
no, its done. even before there are fuel cuts there is damage. you need to check and change your cam follower every 10,000-20,000 miles.
