Will the time in the secondary be shorter or keep it the same do you think?
Yup... probably another day or two.

As for the secondary... you're just letting the beer clarify and mellow a little. The time spent in the secondary should not be affected by the time spent in the primary.

I always give my beers a full 2 weeks in the secondary, sometimes longer if I'm too busy to get them bottled.

The hydrometer should never be put into the fermenter. If you do that, then yes, you can contaminate your beer. Use a clean and sanitized turkey baster (each and every time you sample), draw some wort from the fermenter and dispense into a hydometer jar. Take your hydrometer reading there. Do not return the wort to the fermenter. In fact drink it up, don't let it go to waste down the drain.
