There is your problem. Where are the carbs? read the articles on building mass and diet. you need carbs, pro and fat to get mass. not just protein.

There is an amazing amount of information on this site, I suggest you read up then whatever you dont understand ask questions about. I'm sure that will paint a clear picture of what you need to do to get big.

Not nessarily, if you constantly lift you will probably eventually overtrain. why dont you give us an idea of your diet, and like chinpiece suggested raise your carbohydrate intake as well.
