Bicycling rules

Any biking major biking rules to watch out for? (biking, not talking about bike related rules on public transit or whatever)

I have a couple main questions:

1. I sometimes bike in the "wrong" direction inside the yellow dashed boundary. As in, on the left side. So cars are oncoming, and if another cyclist or whatever came we would cross paths. But the place I've done this has ample room and low traffic, no intersections... It seems (honestly) perfectly safe. But would like to know the official rule

2. I assume when on the road in an uncontrolled intersection where priority-to-the-right would apply, the same applies to you on the bicycle. In practice what has happened for me is cars will often just yield. And I instinctively maybe have some momentum going and maybe it's downhill a bit so I gladly accept their yield. Again doesn't feel like anything dangerous to me or which would endanger others, but would like to know the rule
