In brief: Get it checked
You need to have your leg checked for why it is so swollen.
Different causes have differing treatments, so i'm not going to suggest a treatment without knowing the cause. Unilateral leg swelling can have benign causes, but some causes can be life threatening, so get it checked.

In brief: Depends
The cause of the swelling dictates the activity level.
For some causes it is no activity - like a blood clot. For simple causes the more the better.
