Default Linking turns and torsional flex

When linking turns, are you supposed to unweighted both feet, or just the front foot? For ex. Your in a toe side traverse, to do a heels side turn, do I keep the grip on my back toes, while transferring weight to my front heel to initiate a heel side turn? And if so, how soon after putting weight on my front heel do I put pressure on my back heel in a turn?
Same thing toe side.
Also, should weight always be on the front foot, and knees always be bent?
People say to stay low, but when watching other riders, they don't seem to always have their knees bent.

Thanks
