Hair Damage/Growth Questions

Will wearing my hair in a ponytail a lot cause it to break off or fall out? I use the bands that don't pull or tear the hair, and I always place the ponytail loosely at the nape area so it doesn't pull. Growing up my mother always said if I wore it up too much it would damage it, but it's too hot and humid to wear it down!

Also, how do people get their hair to ever grow long? I get my hair trimmed every other time I go to the salon, so about once every 10 weeks. It seems like when I get it trimmed though the stylist cuts off all the new growth. It's infuriating! Can I go longer in between trims, or will I get a lot of damage?
