My first keel boat was a Buccaneer 20...
Easing the main-sheet or traveler sheet with the gust is better, but pointing up a bit is acceptable IMO, if its a significant gusts its safer to release the sheet.
No more than two reef points would suffice, but considering where you're sailing, and the boat, you could fly just one sail for now
