Re: Travel Dubrovnik - Rijeka
Connections from Dubrovnik to Rijeka are not very good.
There is a ferry two days in week. It takes a day and a night - full 21 hours. Good if you have time to enjoy the scenic ride between Dubrovnik and Split and if you have money to book a cabin for the overnight part of the journey (Split to Rijeka).
There are direct buses several times per day, but the journey takes 12,5 hours! If you decide to take a bus it is worth considering splitting the journey in two and taking a break either in Split or in Zadar.
For driving, the best is to use route planner at http://map.hak.hr/en
Dubrovnik to Rijeka:
607 km, 6 hrs 15 min (note that this involves taking the toll motorway)
Rijeka to Pula: 107 km, 1 hr 20 min
I don't know if you will have a car, if you are planning to rent one it might be worth checking the option Rijeka to Zagreb (by car) combined with a flight Zagreb to Dubrovnik. Flights can be cheap, you can drive Rijeka to Zagreb in about 1,5 hrs. There is also a direct bus from Rijeka to Zagreb airport that is operated by Pleso prijevoz.
Hope this helps.
