Don’t pump your mascara.  Pumping will only dry it out, and result in having to replace it sooner than the three month rule.  The three month rule:  Mascara can harbor bacteria over time and cause eye irritation, so replace your mascara every three months.  Don’t sleep in your mascara.  Doing so will only cause your lashes to become dry, and brittle which will result in breakage.  If you are having problems with mascara clumping, clean an old mascara wand, and use it to brush through lashes for optimal separation.  Apply mascara to bottom lashes first then the top lashes to avoid mascara from smudging on the eye lid.  If your lashes feel brittle apply a primer before mascara
