RAV unemployment benefit

Does anyone have experience of RAV unemployment benefit & how it is calculated?

My wife was made redundant end June 2020.
She registered with the RAV & started to look for jobs start April (& sent evidence to RAV) i.e. 3 months before job finished
Her last working day was 30 June
She was informed that, because of redundancy payment, she would start to receive unemployment benefit from 6 October.
Mid November she received a statement from Syna (finance arm of RAV) that showed a further 15 days benefit had been deducted.
So after looking for jobs for 7 months & being unemployed for 4 months, she has received 4 days unemployment benefit!!

Is this correct? How can she check it?

The statement does not mention AHV. Does RAV / Syna make the AHV contributions while she is unemployed?
Will this be from the point she was unemployed (30 June) or from the point they started to pay unemployment benefit (6 October or 6 October + 15 days)?

Thanks for your help
