A new score is probably the easiest.  You could play around with
spacer rests (s1), or by stacking lots of empty text underneath the
bottom line of your first piece (with _#""_#""_#""_#""_#""_#""), or
a few other ways, but they're all ugly hacks.

A slightly less easy solution, but probably the best one, is to use
lilypond-book.  This could answer some of your other questions, too --
the combination of LaTeX and Lilypond lets you do a lot more than Lilypond
on its own.  It's well worth sitting down and figuring out how LaTeX works.
(it also helps you understand some underlying concepts in Lilypond, too)
