How far in advance can one prep eggplant? How should it be stored? thanks!

Probably depends on what you're doing with it. Cut eggplant will oxidize, but if you're just going to fry or put it in a red/brown sauce that's not really a problem.
Like any cut vegetable it will age, but a few hours should be fine. Pop it in the fridge, covered with cling film, until you're ready to use it.
Agreed it depends. I almost always slice eggplant and sprinkle with salt to get some of the more biter liquids out. I have left that draining for a couple of hours with no issues.
