Brief Answer:
No need to worry.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns.
1. No
2. HIV is transmitted through contaminated body fluids. If there is such a transmission despite protected sex, only then can HIV be transmitted. I do not suppose that such a probability applies and therefore you need not be worried.
3. The window period for a 4th generation antigen/antibody test is four weeks.
4. Not needed.

Let me know if I could help further.
