Your beer will clarify in the primary as well if you leave it for enough time. If you are getting additional fermentation in the secondary vessel then you are transferring your beer to soon! The secondary is to be used, not for fermentation but as a clearing vessel or a place to rack onto fruit, oak or dry hop. None of those processes are supposed to occur before the beer has reached FG.
Transferring before the beer is at final gravity can cause all sorts of problems like no reduction of off flavors and stalled/stuck fermentation issues or beers that just won't reach FG.
For an experiment, leave your next beer in primary for 4 weeks, rack to bottling bucket and compare to your other beers.
