I usually say:

\property Score.defaultBarType="empty"

Then when you do want a normal barline, you say:

\bar "|"

There are some gotchas about doing this; for instance, I also say:

\forgetAccidentals

so that if I put in an fis which is an accidental, the next fis will
also have a sharp on it, whether there's an invisible barline between
them or not.

I think you need to look at \property Score.breakAlignOrder

For the clef, you probably also need to use \property Staff.forceClef = ##t

I don't think I do anything exactly like what you're doing, but if the
examples in input/test don't clarify how to use the suggestions above,
you might want to look at some of the lilypond on my site, which is
largely renaissance music with unbarred parts, with incipits that
indicate the original clef and time signature.

Unfortunately most of it is still in 1.4, and I'm only just now
figuring out how to do the incipits in 1.6.  So write again if you run
into problems.
