I'm not sure there is any normal when it comes to plants James.

This can happen, I had it last year with my Allium Roseum. I wouldnt worry too much as mine flowered perfectly

A bit early but they do make their growth over winter and they are from the coldest part of Caucasus and Steppes, so they will survive.

think all the alliums think it is spring time - my batches of chives which I split a few weeks ago for next year are all growing with lots of new growth - should be going the opposite way - there can be no harm in growth at this time of year - cannot be a tougher plant around...
