    the living tissue goes way down into the skeleton in a lot of LPS corals. usually the best place to cut is in the thinest spot you can get to, IMO.

    No, they are generally pretty fast to recover. I was more concerned with this one as I cut it, brought it home in a bucket for a 6 hour drive, and then threw it into a new tank. When propagating at home, it is best to return it back to near where it was prior to fragmentation.
