backing up mysql binlogs

I would like to implement a mysql backup schedule on my database which is in master / slave replication. My DB is around 10GB, with 1-2 tables about 1GB large. I would like to avoid locking these tables if necessary.

I am backing up the database at 6:00am using mysql dump. Should I be backing up the mysql binlog files hourly to get a point in time (within the hour) recovery? I would be using mysqlbinlog tool to do this and therefore this method I assume would avoid locking the tables appart from @ 6:00am.

Should I flush the mysqlbinlogs after the backup?

What would happen to the replication is I flushed the mysql binlog files?

Many thnaks,
