What are the best practices? Is it better if I use:

http://feeds.feedburner.com/MyRSSFeed instead of http://feeds.feedburner.com/My-RSS-Feed or http://feeds.feedburner.com/My_RSS_Feed

Please suggest.

Best practice in terms of FeedBurner? You can choose whatever account name you want with them as long as nobody else has taken it. To the best of my knowledge there are no benefits or penalties associated with their account names.

I suggest you look at their MyBrand [feedburner.com] option. That lets you publish your feed on your own domain.

Nops not in terms of feedburner. Be it feedburner or test.com/ is it good to include - or _ inside the feed url.

Like:

http://feeds.feedburner.com/My-RSS-Feed or http://feeds.feedburner.com/My_RSS_Feed or http://test.com/My-RSS-Feed or http://test.com/My_RSS_Feed

Any XML reader or parser will render an RSS feed regardless of how you title the file. It's the file contents that matter. As long as you have a valid file you're OK. The title doesn't matter.
