Stiff Clutch

With the engine off it was very hard to depress the clutch, with the motor on easier but rough. The slave and cylinder were replaced a few months back. Pulled the cylinder out, pushed in the pin and pressed in the clutch, all seemed fine. But the cylinder back in, pushed the clutch and fluid leaked out. I took the cylinder out, and the plug, and spring feel out. But it all back together, but it back in the trans, no leaks but no resistance at all in the pedal, and I cannot shift into gear with the motor running.

I think I have two problems now, the slave and cylinder. If I bleed it should it be fine or is it bad, because of how it leaked and came apart?

The clutch, why would the pedal be hard to push when not running, but get easier when the engine is running? The shifting itself was smooth, just pushing the clutch pedal was difficult.

I did a search and could not find what I was looking for. If anybody has any advice and a link I would appreciate it.
