On the ICA website, it says renewal can take about 6 weeks. My experience with my daughter's LTVP renewal processing time is 5 weeks on 2013 and 2 weeks on 2014. It does vary. It is best to renew earlier than 6 weeks to avoid any anxiety. If you do not want to waste the LTVP days when renewing early, you can delay the formalities to up to or even beyond the existing LTVP expiry date depending on the letter you will receive.

You should apply for their SVP on Feb 2 (or 3?) if you do not receive any email from ICA granting an SVP extension by that date. That email should indicate in-principle approval of their LTVP and you can confirm this through the e-VP tool of ICA.

Before the 2nd Feb walk in to ICA and explain at the long term pass info counter that you need to speak to an officer regarding the long Term pass or pending. As you are a PR as long as you have your marriage certificate and child's birth certificate with you , they usually issue/ extend SVP on the spot.
