In brief: Quiescent period
Some people with schizophrenia stop having active symptoms but aren't completely well--still have unusual thoughts, lack energy and motiviation, etc.
This is called residual schizophrenia. Yes, they are susceptible to return of active symptoms.

In brief: Schizophrenia
Is a lifelong illness, and though it may get better it doesn't go away.
