In brief: Yes

Of course! exercise is great for your physical health and will not interfere with you producing breast milk as long as your nutrition (and hydration!) remains good.
Be sure to drink lots of water and consume adequate calories to replenish what you may be losing from breast feeding and also working out.

In brief: Yes

Absolutely. Keep doing whatever activity you did before or start a new regimen.
Make sure to get adequate calories in your diet (you are feeding two now) and plenty of fluids and rest.
