The existing chain will be continued without new Active Full.

In fact I'm studying how to verify the health of my backups, but instant recovery seems a bit heavy and we don't have surebackup though it looks great, so i'm digging about the validator.exe for now
Correct, if you schedule active full, the job will not work as forever forward so you may want to start active fulls manually if you need them.
