4. What happens to the open activities after lead conversion?

During lead conversion, all the open activities related to that particular lead get automatically associated with the corresponding Account, Contact and Deal.

5. Can I create two leads under the same company account? If so, can all those leads be added as contacts to an Account?

You can't directly add multiple leads/contacts under a single company in Zoho CRM.  
However, you can follow these steps to add multiple leads:

  1. Create a lead with the company name. Click on the Leads tab, select the Company field and enter the company name.
  2. Create a custom field to specify that the leads belong to the same company. Learn how to create custom fields. 
  3. Create a custom view to group leads which belong to the same company. Click here for more information.
  4. When you convert the lead to a contact, you will get a message asking if you'd like to associate it with the existing account.   
  5. Click Convert.
