This item gives you the following effects:
This modifier is specifically to the total recovery per second you get from all instances of leech, not to individual instances. It thus does not affect the rate and duration of any individual leech instance, but increases the total recovery per second you get from all of them (up to the maximum). Because each instance's duration is unchanged, this will result in more total life leeched in cases where you were not already at the maximum total recovery per second. In practice, this will help you reach that maximum with fewer instances of leech.
It absolutely does do exactly what it says.
Each instance of leech has a maximum amount it can recover. This stat modifies that maximum. If you do not reach that maximum, this changes nothing - like any maximum it only matters if you try to exceed it. If the amount you're trying to leech with a given instance is higher that the maximum per leech instance, raising that maxumum will allow that leech instance to recover a higher amount, which will mean it lasts longer because it recovers at a fixed rate.
A modifier to leech duration would always change the duration of leech instances (and would require that either leech is not determined by an amount to leech, or that the rate not be fixed - one of the three has to be determined by the other two, rather than separately modified).
A: This is not a thing that can happen. The maximum is on the amount of recovery from a specific leech instance. Those modifiers only affect the total amount of leech recovery you get from all instances as a whole. The "extra" recovery does not come from any of the instances, and thus is not subject to their maximum. The total leech on your character is not the same thing as the leech of a single leech instance.
This is similar to the distinction between damage and damage taken.
Another new Vaal unique in Ultimatum is Mahuxotl’s Machination, which grants you six keystone passives at once. Combining all of these keystones results in some very unusual outcomes, and the item features an entirely unique new keystone as well.
