Soft brakes/clutch

hi everyone, hope you can help, i dont have much knowhow or experience with renos

i recently got my first reno Megane mk2 - moved from VW.

changed the clutch cylinder on the megane and also changed the brake disks and pads (front).

Bleed the clutch ( which was strange i must admit) and there was no need to bleed the brakes as i pushed in the caliper (nothing was opened).

Now the brake pad is really soft, it does get harder when pressed a few times but than goes back to being soft. also the abs plug was disconnected - which i managed to reconnect - until i find a fix as i did not place the clip on the ball joint (forgot it out - until i change the suspension arm).

the clutch also feels like it may be slipping a bit as the car vibrates or reves for a bit before the gear fully kicks in.

so am i right i thinking that i need to further bleed the clutch

bleed the breaks

this was all due to the ABS being disconnected?
