Wait, this was an actual question? I thought it was hypothetical or something; like, if by some odd luck somebody who knew how to use Rule Breaker and had an inclination to do so had it in their possession, would it work on the Puella Magi? If it's a serious question of the functionality of it in a story then, yeah, there are bigger problems than whether or not it'd work.

Second point is possible, first point isn't as far as I can tell.

The probable scenario with Soul Gems is that they provide a constant (but negligible) drain of magic to control the body, and thus would eventually darken whether you use magic consciously or not. Even if this isn't outright confirmed it pretty much has to be true, else there wouldn't have been a way for the first Witch to be born (since the first Puella Magi would have been born first, without Witches to fight).
