Minha casa é mais pequena do que a casa do meu namorado. Isn't it right to say "mais pequena" in Portuguese ?

No, it's not correct, I'm brazilian!

Mais pequena is replaced for "menor"! Same thing to "mais grande" that it replaced for "maior"

Why do I need 'do que' here instead of just 'que'? What English words should I translate 'do que' to?

When using a comparasion, you can choose whether use "que" or "do que". Both are acceptable
