How:

How far:
Until it doesn't work anymore, than back off a bit.

It is a high voltage that will damage the processor.
The processor will monitor it's temperature and slow down or shut off if it detects a dangerous temperature. That is around 100c.
FWIW:
As of 2/6/2019
What percent can get an overclock at a somewhat sane Vcore in the 1.337 to 1.375 range.
And AVX offset = 2.

I7-9700K

5.2 10%
5.1 35%
5.0 78%
4.9 100%
