I don't believe I myself exhale. Helps make it a fluid motion in my opinion. Breathe in, out by playing, in as necessary, out...
I don't know if that's for sure how you're supposed to do it, but I've never had a problem. I would just do what feels most comfortable/natural (they could be different).
I've heard something mentioned about people getting dizzy from exhaling all and breathing all in. I suppose that might make sense, given you're then going to be taking in massive breaths that you obviously don't need all the air of. However, this is just something I've heard, I wouldn't take it to heart necessarily.

I don't believe a word of this. I think that we just have a great deal of inconsistency in SOs playing. I would suggest not trying to reinvent the wheel.
