some bacteria live in water normally. Do you mean like destilled water or liquid media?

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

Some bacteria grow in water - including "distilled" water.

Some bacteria enter e quiescent state when temperatures drop, and may last very long time. months or years. Although not actively multiplying they are still viable.

Bacteria can and likely will replicate in your water.

It depends on the bacteria...

Depending of the bacteria type they can survive and multiply in both conditions. If the water is clear of micro organisms (sterile) it can reduce the live span.

Supposedly not that good, but probably better than was thought. They are indicators because they do not survive well, i.e. they are valuable because they are telling you that some fecal contamination entered water recently.

if there is coliform in a newly bottled purified water, how long does a bacteria survive in there?
