As far as I'm aware. You add sugar to the secondary fermentation to carbonate the beer. That's what I do but I've only bottled so far.
Nope. You add the sugar to the bottling bucket just before bottling. Most people here will advise against the use of a secondary, unless you are adding something like fruit (for example). Most beers don't need a secondary.
