Yes - it performed it's flyby of Pluto a few years back, and about a year ago it flew by another Kuiper Belt Object. It's still an active probe, and will be for perhaps 14 more years, if I remember correctly.

Yes, it is still on the job. It was planned that a slingshot at Pluto would send it into the Kupier belt to study objects Doing so well, it is planned to stay working into 2021.

Yes, the New Horizon is still currently exploring space. As of March 2019, New Horizons was about 4.1 billion miles from Earth, operating normally and speeding deeper into the Kuiper Belt at nearly 33,000 miles per hour.
The New Horizons mission is currently extended through 2021 to explore additional Kuiper Belt objects.
