I assume David Weber has started writing the third book, but has this been confirmed? I cannot wait!

David has so much other projects on his table (Norfressa, Safehold, Multiverse, the both strings in the early Honorverse etc) - I doubt that he has the time for book 3 at the moment.
Mind, I hope he comes around to write it in the foreseeable future, too - but I wouldn't hold my breath in the meantime.

Does David intend to hand this series over to Chris Kennedy? Given the pace of the story it has the makings of a 5 or 6 book sequence (ending with book 3 would be artificially abrupt) and as you say he has a lot on his plate.

I think that's the point of doing it as collaboration. David would spend less time per book as the series progresses. I don't know how much each spent on the last one, but it surely does not feel like a Chris Kennedy book, so I suspect it was still heavy of David's hand.
