Herb trimming

I have some rosemary from last year, and it looks a bit worse for wear.
Basically, I was waiting for it to get a bit bigger before I started cultivating it, but it didn't.

Now, it's getting quite woody, and it's still the same small size. I lopped the top off, hoping that does something, but it occurs to me that I should have been cutting off big main branches? I thought it would just grow.

And is it the same with basil? I've been picking the big leaves off, but do I need to snip stems etc to make it grow bigger?
