I've lagered for as long as 8 weeks without re-yeasting, and it's turned out fine.
My 5 gallon kegs actually hold more than 5 gallons, so I usually keg about 5.25 gallons. As long as the beer is below the gas diptube, you're fine,
It might be easier to use a bottling bucket for this job. Siphon the beer into the bottling bucket, and fill the keg with some long tubing. When the keg is full, switch over to the bottling wand and fill the bottles. That's what I do. I've also primed the whole batch, and then just filled bottles at the end, so I didn't have to use carb tabs.
