Couple of questions
My 4 week old is EBF, but I've noticed she went from nursing for a while to nursing for maybe 20 minutes each feeding. She's gaining weight good and acting very content between feeds. She nurses til she lets go, she'll unlatch a few times and eat for a minute or two more but then she refuses the nipple, is nursing this short amount of time normal? She was 8lbs 12ozs at birth, went down to 7lbs 11ozs and is now 10lbs 11ozs. I was also wondering about exercising during BF'ing, I've read it can decrease your supply, is this true?

Absolutely, my little girl, who is 10 months now,  has never nursed for more than 15 minutes, even as a newborn. I was surprised at first as my son had nursed for about 45 minutes every feed for several months. Sounds like your little one is doing great.
Excercise in moderation is fine, just be sure to stay hydrated and eat well.
Congratulations on your new baby!
