Question about watering

  I'm not having really good luck with my african violet. I know they should be watered from the bottom up and that they don't like wet feet  but I'm not sure how much water I should be giving it.

When I water it as I think is correct the leaves get all yellowed like in this picture. Is it preferable to let it dry out before watering? Somehow it seems my plant likes that better. Do those self watering planters really work or is there a greater chance of over watering if I get one of those? Also, this plant has a baby shoot which started last year. Is it best to separate it or can I leave it in the same pot? Thanks for any helpful advise.
