The purpose of VTP is to simplify the VLAN configuration. You can configure the vlans on the VTP server and it will get to propogated to all other VTP servers/clients in the same VTP domain. You don't have to configure VLANs in all the switches.

My understanding was VTP pruning is enabled by default in most versions of software. Check your switch config to see if it has been disabled by someone. If it's I would enable it as it doesn't hurt even if it doesn't help.
Changing the VTP mode to client shouldn't affect the operations as you haven't added the VLANs yet anyway.
