Means your not igniting all the fuel and it's leaking past the pistons into the oil. Does the oil look thin?

Hitting the rev limiter is bad, but if it happens only occasionaly to rarely you'll be ok. Try to avoid it though.

either way fuel will find its way into the crank case. this is why our cars and about all cars ingeneral have a pcv system. it is used to recirculate unburnt fuel fumes back into the intake track to be reburned. there really is nothing you can do about this. even my old total seal build had fuel in the oil.
