1: When it comes to making barre chord shifts, I find the guitar making buzzing noises when I release a barre chord. Any tips?
2: I have know Idea what this technique is called, but I'll try my best. Let's say we have a particular chord sequence, If we instead of letting each chord ring out, one mutes the strings after playing them to create very staccato-like rythm. I cannot think of any specific examples where this is used, but generally I find it frequent in reggae music. How do I silence the strings without breaking the motion of my right hand? Do I have to make muted chords in between chord shifts?

Hopefully, my descriptions are not to vague.
