Floating is good. Floating berries with a faded color mean that all of the flavors and color have been extracted from the berries.
I've only brewed one fruit beer and that was Sam Calagione's KiWit recipe in his Extreme Brewing book. In that recipe he calls for 4 lbs of diced kiwi to be added at the end of the BOIL, steeped for 20, and then dumped into the primary along with the wort. Normally you'd want to avoid boiling the fruit because it'll release pectins that will cloud your beer, however wit beers are naturally cloudy so it really doesn't matter and extracts a lot more of the kiwi flavor. Clogged the heck out of my siphon though.
