Question Proper Braking Techniques

Here I go again with another question about technique, but bear with me this is the only way I'm going to get better .

I have the basics of braking under my belt, but I think I am far from mastering it, so any sharing of experience on this subject would be much appreciated.

Also, when is the proper time to use the rear brake on tarmac. I know that on dirt, if you want to slide the rear this is probably one of the best ways of doing this. Is there a situation on tarmac where it would warrant this?

Also, my Adventure comes with the linked braking system, meaning that when the front brake is applied it also brakes the rear as needed, automatically. Any comments on how this might affect the balance on the bike between the front and the rear? Is this ideal for most situations?
