Jpeg vs. RAW pre printing

Talk Printing and Presentation - Talk Photography - www.talkphotography.co.uk
I'm a relative newbie to printing, but have spent a lot of time reading up.

I have a couple of questions...

Today I processed a RAW image ready for printing so that the black and white points were just not clipping in Lightroom. I then exported this as a Jpeg.

1st Question... does anybody use the LR print module without exporting the processed RAW file as a jpeg? Is there a recommended practice?

When I looked at the jpeg histogram, it had compressed and appeared that I needed to expand my range at either end - more whites and blacks/contrast.

2nd Question... I know jpegs are lossy, but is this what you would expect with the histogram?

3rd Question...Would you then tweak the whites and blacks on the jpeg before printing?

I have been experimenting with using LR or letting the Canon printer manage the printing, and today tried the Canon Pro Studio software for the first time. In this case I tried brightening the image and upping the contrast a little.

Lots to learn and really enjoying it, but would be interested to hear what more experienced people would do.
