So what are the assumptions that I should look out for? Any more answers on the other parts of my question? Thanks again.

You are basing your decision of non-significance on a test whose validity is based on an assumption. If the assumption is not valid, then neither is the test. Think of a simple analogy with linear models. Suppose the relation between y and x is a V-shaped one. The coefficient of x in a linear model may well test out to zero. That would not mean that the relationship is linear. m.p.
