You should parse the whole buffer and push as many frames as you can decode.

You keep the data you received around, don't push anything, return from
function and try to decode again the next time the chain function is
called with more

I would not do that.
What you usually do is rely on a parser to properly frame that data for
your decoder. A
usually also implements seeking and pull mode (when possible). Parser
make your decoder
easier to write.
