How much Gator Patch should I apply?

It's like peanut butter on toast: you want a layer that covers pavement and seeps into the cracks, but not so thick that it's all Gator Patch and no pavement. The longer your strokes, the more visually appealing it will be when it dries. Use a hard trowel or a stiff squeegee to smooth it on evenly.

Can I use Gator Patch to fill linear cracks at the same time?

Rubberized Hot Pour Filler is a better solution for this problem because it has better expansion properties due to its higher rubber content. Rubber crack filler will expand and contract with heat and cold; Gator Patch does not have the same flexibility, so using it to fill cracks could allow moisture to seep into your asphalt's foundation.
