Really confused with Duac/benzoyl peroxide!

Hi, I'm a 21 year old male. Ive been using Duac Once Daily (Benzoyl Peroxide 5%, Clindamycin 1%) for years however these are the things I'm unsure about:

1. Does it need to be stored in the fridge even after opening it? I always thought the pharmacy has to store it in a fridge and then after it's opened it can just be stored in any temperature below 25 degrees C so can be in a cupboard.
2. Should it be washed off in the morning? I usually put it on and leave it on all night and day, wash it off at night before bed and apply it again.
3. If I get spots on my nose does any Duac need to put Duac on my nose too?
4. I have bad and multiple hyperpigmentation marks, should I not use Duac/benzoyl peroxide then as I have heard it worsens and hyperpigmentation marks and makes then last longer?
