In brief: Moderation

Yes you can excercise but nothing extreme.
Any excercise that can make your blood pressure very high can induce rupture . Also this depends on location and size of the aneurysm , for example if you have a 3.5 cm abdominal aortic aneurysm then you are safe but if it is 8 cm then get it fixed soon first.

In brief: Highly variable

Depends on size & location of aneurysm..
.Assuming we are talking about aortic aneurysm. Ct or MRI scans are useful for determining the above.

In brief: Yes

You need to be careful not to raise your blood pressure and a lot depends on where your aneurysm is.
Would talk to your vascular surgeon before proceeding.
