In the primary, if it looks like it is still, and only a bubble or two through the lock in a minute,then its safe to rack to secondary. But, if you didn't suck up a bunch of trub the first time, IMHO, i'd just let it ride to finish right where it is, then go to the bottling step. The more times it's messed with, the more chance to get it contaminated and oxygenated.
When you bottle, put a piece of sanitzed al. foil over the top of the carboy until you do the bottles. Then there will be a bit of beer still left over your yeast cake. swirl it around till it's all mixed up good then pour it into sanitized jar, cover (al-foil) and put in the fridge. It will remain viable under beer for up to 3 weeks. Wyeast London Ale III is a tough breed and can take what other yeasts couldn't handle. If you want to keep it longer, pour off the old beer and add some new wort to replace it, let it rock and roll a while and put it back.
Some of the other guys might be able to help you somemore.
