Can someone confirm the rule? Merci!
With compound verbs and dual-verb constructions, the first and second word of most* negative pronouns surround the conjugated (first) verb. The exceptions: Personne and aucun place ne in front of the conjugated verb and the second word after the main verb.
Par exemple: Je n'ai vu personne hier. (I saw no one yesterday.)
Yes, because -- other than pas -- personne (and also rien) carry meaning.
