One simple thing you can do is to use a settling tank/carboy/bucket. Drain your cooled wort into it and let it sit for 30 minutes or so, and then siphon that into your fermentor. The other thing to try is recirculating the cooled wort back into the kettle until the output from the chiller is clear.

For people who wash and reuse yeast, that's one less thing they need to try to clean off it.

Cold break is tough to keep out. Like slarkin said, your best bet might be to either let it sit in a temporary container for about half an hour and then siphon to the fermentor.
