cut freehand. A bandsaw blade will always run off to one side or the other, even using a fence.
The rip fence is intended for re-sawing only, and very thin strips

Look for any gouges in the metal surface that have metal projecting above the milled surface. Also, file or grind away any sharp edges along the miter gauge track. If the cut surface is very irregular, the blade may have overly coarse teeth, or the blade guide rollers may not be holding the blade firmly allowing the blade to wander while cutting. Hope this helps.

This could have many causes...depending on the model of saw, the wood being cut, the blade you're using, etc. etc.
Check that the blade is correctly installed, up to tension, and sharp. Make sure the wheels run smoothly on their on, and under power. Check the horsepower of the motor, and make sure to keep the feed rate down within the motor's capacity. Finally, don't twist the work being cut to a smaller radius than the size blade will handle, or you will bind the blade in the cut.
If you are cutting wood with pitch or grain that is likely to be under tension, perhaps you need to insert a wedge into the cut to prevent the work from pinching the blade as it continues the cut.
I hope that leads to a solution. Sometimes all you can do is feed slowly and be patient...
