Default Powerlifting and dieting

While I've come to suspect dieting for any reason other than making weight is generally unacceptable in the PL community, I feel that this question is still best addressed to those who hold a higher emphasis on strength at any rate.
Essentially what my question is, how would you go about a cut while retaining strength, muscle retention would be nice- but strength for me would be primary.

Relevant points would be:
-Is slow steady dieting be good, or should I just blitz through and then regain strength?
-Opinions on zig zag dieting/ refeeds (would it be best to cut calories the day after a workout, or just limit calories the day of a workout, just before I hit the gym)
-What kind of cardio, if any, should I do (LISS vs. High Intensity Interval)
-Do I max out during my workouts, if so how frequently? Should I cut volume and increase intensity?
-Can you gain strength on a cut, and if so how?
-Preferred macro nutrient profile?
-Anything else you can think of.
