I was always taught to keep pressure on the outfeed side, keeping the freshly jointed face against the table once enough was present to get a push block on, then the right had just provides forward pressure enough to advance the piece. I might also say that your outfeed side may be below the TDC of the blades.

They should be parallel, but if the infeed side slants away from the cutter head (the first most portion of the infeed side), then they will not be parallel. In that case, one would have to shim the dovtail to get it back to parallel.
