Hydraulic clutches don't use hydraulic assist. They just use a fluid medium to transfer master cylinder movement to the slave cylinder.

Regardless whether having one's foot resting on the clutch pedal damages anything or not, it's a bad habit.

One could rest their foot ever so lightly on the brake pedal so there's no braking, but again, it's a bad habit.

Just say no.

Yeah, what I mean is like a hydraulic brake system, the force being applied to the slave cylinder is much greater than if you pushed on it with just a linkage. It's basic hydraulics. There's a reason they are so much easier to push in.
