Well I have never heard of more than one coat of wax.
As far as applicator go synthetic the steel wool leaves dirt as wears and breaks and is hard to clean out of corners and go easy on loading the pad you dont need much
wait at least two days before applying
as far as a buildup problem after you aapplyt with the pad in line with grain with moderate pressure immediately take a paper towel and buff the surface as you do it put a put a couple of drops of cold water down. The water keeps the wax cool to avoid streaking and it will make the excess congel and stick to the paper towel but just a few drops is all it takes
then let dry for an hour or two
if you can push your thumb across the surface with out it leaving a smear you did it right if it smears go back with water and a synthetic pad with light pressure to remove the extra wax.
and i wax all my furniture and a can of briwax lasts me bout six months so it goes futher than you think
