Basement Vent for Fixtures AND Sewage Ejector?

Hello fellow DIY'ers! I am finishing my basement which was already roughed out for plumbing including a sewage ejector pit. I know the sewage pit needs a dedicated vent of its own and so I have two related questions:

1) There is a 2" pipe coming through the floor joists above directly above the sewage ejector pit. It looks to be intended as the vent pipe for this pit. How can I tell/trace where this vent pipe actually vents? (and if anything else ties into it?)

2) The new bathroom is roughly about 7'-8' from where the sewage pit is located. Do I need vents for each of the fixtures (toilet, sink, shower) AND the sewage pit, or just venting the pit good enough for code?

I'd appreciate any and all ideas and thoughts!

Another thought/question...

2A) Assuming the rough in was done right when the house was built, perhaps the roughed in fixtures are already vented? If so, how can I tell?
