Help a fashion novice get a handle on her new handbag.

I recently bought a Fendi Classico No. 4
as a self-reward for an accomplishment and because it's just perfect for me. But I don't own a lot of designer items or keep up with all the trends, so I'm a little clueless as to how to treat it! A few specific questions are below, but my general question is - what should I know about owning a really nice handbag like this?

1) As you can see in the above link, it has a leather tag attached to the handle with a gold chain. Are you supposed to leave tags like these on the bags or are they meant to be taken off? I like the tag, but I don't want to look like a show-offy dork.
2) The dust bag. Is that just for longterm storage or what?
3) How do I prolong the life of the bag? Not just leather care, but carrying it around and whatnot. I had a Kate Spade for a brief period, but the color rubbed off in splotches within a few months. And I thought I was being so careful!
4) I'm a one bag kinda girl. Well, I have a clutch for dressy occasions, but I don't have different bags for different outfits or seasons or whatever. I probably never will. Are there ways to accessorize the one I've now got to change things up now and then?
