There is nothing wrong with dribbling the ball over your head, even though you should dribble from the floor to your waist for proper dribbling. As long as you don't necessarily carry the ball, or put your hand under it to move the ball, it is not considered a carry.

Yes. According to NBA, NCAA, and High School Rules, if the dribble is stopped, and you hold onto the ball, you can begin to dribble again once an opposing player makes any contact with the ball in your hands. This includes but is not limited to attempting to strip or knock away the ball from your possession. Even if you retain possession, you are free to dribble again.
