My have thru off a swarm on 7.26.13.  They are bringing in lots of pollen. Does that mean there is already a Queen or do they just continue to bring it in knowing there will soon be one.

I have never seen a direct correlation between pollen gathering and queenrightness.  I've seen queenless hives haul pollen like crazy.
