Yep, I've heard the coolant pump always running when charging but have never observed the radiator fan (or any fan) running while charging. Then again, I hardly charge at home and mostly charge at work. But, I have sometimes checked on my car while it's charging.
As for radiator fan running while driving, yes, it ALWAYS comes on for me if I either turn on the AC or heat on my '13 SV. OP, what if you turn those off or simply turn the HVAC to off?
