That's exactly what you should see ... nothing.

as always, David's right.

Secondary is not actually for fermentation (despite the name). its actually for clearing the beer.
it might burp a little CO2, it might not.

really you wanna make sure primary was complete by using your hydrometer, then 2 weeks or so in secondary to help the yeast fall out of suspension, as well as clean up any off flavors like diacetyl.
