The only time you can correct your dog for peeing in the house is if you catch them in the act, if you get mad even 5 seconds after the act has happened the dog will not relate your anger to the peeing. When you catch them in the act, a strong "no" and take them outside. When they relieve themselves outside, praise them for that. Pups need to pee up to 6 times a day so keep that in mind.
As for the crate it need to be big enough for them to turn around in and be able to lay down in.
As for walking them too much..... not likely! keep them well exercised so when they are in the crate they are tired and will sleep.
You can run, but you will only be caught tired. You can hide, but you will only be caught quicker.
