[tor-relays] Question on bridge hibernation

Is set to hibernate once it reaches a certain traffic level (this is to prevent massive charges to my VPS). Now that is in hibernation, when will it start again, and how would this effect how it’s distributed? Are bridges that are hibernating removed from relay search? Mew to hibernation, thanks.
