Have you considered a whole-house fan/roof vent combo? Basically it doubles as a roof vent, but, with louvered shutters in your attic access can vent your entire house (providing you open a few windows). Nothing like it on a nice spring day when the breeze isn't really blowing.

Since it's too humid inside the home during the heating season, have you investigated what's going on with the humdifier? Is it set correctly? Or even better still, why is it running at all? IMO, attic ventilation would have to be extremely whacked out to have any noticeable effect on humdity in the living space. On the other hand, a misadjusted humidifier will easily do it.
