The first ability applies only if your life total is being reduced by damage. Other effects or costs (such as "lose 1 life" or "pay 1 life") can reduce your life total below 1 as normal.
If an effect asks you to pay life, you can't pay more life than you have.
The last sentence is not a prevention effect. It stops unpreventable damage from reducing your life total below 1.
The ability doesn't change how much damage is dealt; it just changes how much life that damage makes you lose. An effect such as Spirit Link will see the full amount of damage being dealt.
Thief won't prevent you from losing the game if your life total is 0 or less or some other effect causes you to lose the game.
