Yes pansies and violas can go on flowering for quite a long time. You can dig them up and put them in smaller pots. I did that with a few of mine. They are tough as old boots and take a lot for re-potting. Yes you can prune them quite hard back, the Chelsea Chop. If you have good growth at the bottom of the plant they will grow and flower again. It's worth keeping them because when your bedding plants die off, hopefully your pansies and violas will give you Autumn and Winter colour. You can get a good couple of seasons out of them.
