As regards quiescencing, then it is done only when you enable VMware Tools quiescence option.
Pre-freeze scripts quiesce the VM file system and application data to bring the VM to a consistent state before Veeam Backup & Replication triggers a VMware VM snapshot.

The scripts will get executed if located at the right point in the file system and if VMware Tools are installed and running every time a snapshot is created.
Just right before creation, pre-freeze is execute, right after *creation* post-thaw is executed, so in my case the database just stays in backup mode for a couple of seconds.
I'm just backing up the database once a day. For a more granular archive log backup, I've set up a mount point and copy over the archive logs every fifteen minutes.

1: no, I just created /usr/sbin/pre-freeze-script and /usr/sbin/post-thaw-script there and put root:root and 755 on each. These are basically wrapper scripts which call other scripts run by Oracle DBA to put the database in backup mode.
