The few times I've pre-ordered something on Steam you have been able to download it 1-2 days before it being released, but now I have pre-ordered ACU on Uplay and wonder if they usually have the same thing?

No. But their CDN network is quite good, it took me only 1 hour to download AC4 a year ago.

in addition to what Anykeyer said, the game might have incremental downloading process like The Crew, meaning you can download few GBs and UPlay marks the game as playable so you can launch it and start playing while the rest is being downloaded in background.
