Pronunciation of kana can be easily picked up from any Japanese audio sources, be it anime, J-pop, movies or any other thing you can get your hands on.
As for Kanji, I don't really have much advice to give. I learn Japanese entirely through self-study (In Japanese, I think its called 自学自習（じがくじしゅう). I just memorise Kanji, and I try to use Kanji whenever possible when I try to write a few lines of Japanese as practise. Some commonly used Kanji just get automatically memorised when I do that.
I would recommend "The Kodansha Kanji Learner's Dictionary" to help with Kanji learning. This dictionary gives detailed information about 2230 Kanjis, including all those in the 常用（じょうよう）list. It gives all the 訓読み（くんよみ）, 音読み（おんよみ）and certain special readings. Many examples are shown in the form of commonly used compound words.
Hope this helps.
