Is it right to ask “how are you all doing?”

Is it right to ask "how are you all doing?"? Should I reply to a "How do you do?" with an "Am good" or should I say "How do you do" myself in return?

When did “y'all” become improper?

It is my understanding that the contraction y'all was considered correct American English in times past. At what point was this word removed from valid American English?
