That's why you use a generous amount of the spray typically provided and keep checking the surface area your working on. Still, its probably the least harsh of all things we can do. I've seen very positive results come of this than anything else. Even a newb can do it with basic instructions.

Clay bars are generally easy to utilize. Lots of lubricant such as car wash soap and water (the foaminess is great) and very light pressure. You really don't even need to press down on it at all.

Rule of thumb, if the clay bar drops, throw it out.

I've heard of cleaners using quick detailer as lube, one that has some cleaning power and little or no protective properties. Thoughts on that?

I personally used to use quick detailer for it all the time. Then I started doing research and looking into what the real deal professionals were doing and turns out, I've been wasting a boat ton of money on quick detailers haha.

Car wash soap and water provides the same, if not more lubricity for the clay bar than some quick detailers do. You really don't need it for cleaning properties at all, just solely the lubricity is what's needed. After that you'd give it a isoprop wipe down to get rid of any waxes and oils anyhow too.
