Bass guitar finger style playing?
1) I have heard of the following technique, cuz it will mute strings that are note being played:
As I play, my striking fingers are coming to rest on the next lower string when I play the adjacent higher string.
But when I do that, I will accidentally touch pickups all the time. Is it WRONG, when playing not using this technique. And even tho, how do I avoid touching pickups that way ?
2) When coming from higher string to lower one, higher one keeps ringing. Any tips how do I mute it each time ? With striking fingers or fretting ones ?
1. Well, you should play however feels comfortable. If you don't like using that technique, find another one that you do like. I personally mute the strings by resting my thumb on the one above the one I'm playing. That's how I was taught and it's been working out for me pretty good so far. That doesn't necessarily mean that you will like that technique as well.
There is no right or wrong way to play instruments. There are techniques that should be used to avoid injury (proper posture, etc.) but you should always do what feels comfortable. I don't know how you could avoid touching the pickups other than playing the strings somewhere else on the body or by lowering them.
2. Do you mean "higher" by physically higher or by higher in pitch? When I play the strings that are lower in pitch and then move up I bring my thumb down to mute it. Muting strings that are higher in pitch pretty much has to be done with your fretting hand. Again, there is no correct way to do this, but an effective method is to keep your fingers draped across the strings at all times so that they can't ring out. That won't really work when playing at high speeds, but you shouldn't have to do much of that as a bassist and "shredding" cleanly just comes with lots and lots of practice.
