The first is obvious, the second: you are hitting buttons rapidly. The problem is if you hit more than once per second, your character will continue the combo. Hit the attack button 5 times in one second then stop, your character will complete the 5 hit combo, unless interrupted by an enemy attack. This is VERY bad, especially in this game. Why? You need to be able to stop attacking to dodge (dashes are invincible). In this game you're always eating cheap hits cuz you're locked into your attack chain, unable to dash through attacks from above or behind.
