The only general rules are to keep an eye on the histogram while making changes so that the adjustment does not cause any color to move beyond the edges. Reduction in exposure could make some colors to fall off the left edge causing details to be lost into blackness. Similarly, Increasing the exposure may make the colors to exceed the right edge resulting in bright patches.
