One thing I would say not to do is think higher reps will get you more cut. If anything, you should be lifting heavier than you normally would to help retain strength and muscle size. Here are some good articles.
https://www.t-nation.com/training/ti...y-when-dietingMaintaining or even gaining strength is the absolute best way to make sure that you're not losing muscle. If you keep pushing big weights, it'll force the body to keep its muscle since it will see it as necessary for survival. If you reduce the amount of weight you're lifting, the body will "assume" that you don't require as much strength and that it's okay to lower your muscle mass. Why? Because muscle uses a ton of calories every day and the body will see it as expendable.
You also need to take volume into consideration. When in a caloric deficit, you may want to reduce volume since recovery is going to be slower.

All good advice here. I only switch to higher reps when deloading / deconditioning in order to start a new phase of growth / progression afterwards.
