How munch clearance should you have between the scope and barrel.

There is no minimum clearance.  As long as the scope's objective bell isn't physically touching the barrel, you're fine.  I have one rifle with the scope mounted with only about 0.015" clearance between the objective bell and barrel, and there's been no problem.  Just make sure it doesn't touch.

No, it really shouldn't be touching the barrel.  You don't want anything touching the barrel except for sometimes a pressure point inside the barrel channel of the stock, depending on the rifle.
