Sounds like the clutch pedal master cylinder gave out on you. It has nothing to do with how much fluid you put in. That would explain why it got air in it and made it hard to shift and also why pumping it would make it work for a little while. It's a common part to go out on our cars with age.
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
