In brief: Methadone and oxycon
Firstly both Methadone and Oxycontin are long acting - i would ask why are you taking two long acting medications together. Secondly the use of benzodiazepines such as cloeazepam are not recommended with Methadone - there have been reported deaths from this combination.

In brief: No
As above, i generally use only one long acting opioid.
I almost never add a benzo to an opioid, especially methadone, as risk of death significantly increases.

Clonazepam is a sedating drug, not a pain killer. Adding Clonazepam to the medications you are taking can increase the risk of death or severe injury.
