Having negative AC

Based on some comments in another thread where the discussion briefly touched on AC, I was wondering about having negative AC. Personally I find that as soon as I find =of the dog or =reckless attacks, I always wear them. I'm usually sporting a fairly light weapon so the damage gets pretty high pretty quickly for when I need to melee stuff.

I have a vague idea about AC. I'm guessing the higher your AC is, the harder it is for monsters to hit you. Also a higher AC means less damage taken from the strikes that do hit. i.e. higher mitigation.

Is the above true?

Secondly, does having a negative AC, as my current @ has, increase the chance for monsters to hit me and increase their damage or is it calculated as having 0 AC?
