Not sure if i understand the question, there will still be plenty of yeast in suspension after fives weeks so yes they will ferment some or most or all of the sugar in the fruit.

RDWHAHB. It looks good to me. Take gravity readings. They are your only true answers. I bet it turns out great, in time.

Probably not going to get a big krausen on a secondary with fruit. Yeast has made beer for a whole lot longer than us. Trust it and it wont let you down.

There will be very little "activity". Relax. It's doing it's job.
