HSV-1 and HPV

To give a little medical background for myself, I contracted herpes type 1 virus in my genital area a little over a year ago. I have also contracted the HPV virus a few months ago.
I hate to admit that I have had unprotected sex since contracting the herpes virus, but to my knowledge I have not transmitted it. I was not having any sort of sexual relations since I found out that I had HPV (warts) until last night.
I am extremely worried that my luck is running out as far as not spreading these viruses to anyone, and would like some consolation by having the following questions answered:

1) Could there be a connection between the two viruses that makes the herpes virus easier for a partner to contract or vice verse?
2) Does having the genital areas very clean make it more likely to spread (i.e. contact in a shower)?
3) Does simply coming in contact with a lesion assure transmission of HPV warts?

I have not been able to rest my mind all day. I appreciate your feedback.

If you have obvious warts, get them removed.

Hsv1 genitally doesn't shed very often. As far as I'm aware, no research has shown that having hpv on top of it makes it shed more often.  

sex in the shower isn't higher risk either.

yea i really want to get them removed, but im not sure about the cost and just recently moved and havent found a doctor of any sort yet.

but if his genitals came in contact with a wart (which are all very small, almost unnoticeable) is there a good chance that he contracted it?
