Default Doing the steeps!!!!!

We have plenty of hills around here. Im very pleased with climbing performance with a 40 tooth, and pedal assisting on the real steep climbs. slowest I have had to go is 40km/h (pedal assisted of course.)
I want to know how people decend. I have been braking on my decends to eekp the motor from overreving. Im I better to throw the clutch in and save the motor for when its needed. Kill the motor completly and clutch down and restart motor at the bottom?
Is it going to cause excessive wear on the clutch?
