The license is activated after it has been checked.

The Utility AIs are stored in a folder called “ApexAIStorage”. It is stored in the resources folder by default. But you can alternatively search for it in the Project view.
The license is stored in your profile local application storage, which means it is machine wide.
Yes, the license is not stored in the project, see above.
If you remove/reinstall Unity it does not affect the license.

Reinstalling your Operating System typically means wiping local app storage, which means you should deactivate the license before doing so.
The same applies if you get a new PC.

Deactivating it is done in the Tools -> Apex -> Products window. Click the deactivate button next to the Apex AI product.

You can also deactivate from your account.
