They gain only limited magical abilities: Run Faster, p. 141, emphasis mine: All Infected are dual natured and may freely learn the Assensing and Astral Combat skills. Unless they’re magically active, however, they cannot learn or use skills linked to the Magic attribute. Neither can they astrally project, bond foci, or initiate. An exception to ...

Yes, to a degree A precedent for this can be found in Horte Magischen Wissens (Q7) (publisher link), on page 110 in the description of the School of Variable Forms of Mirham (Black Box). There, for their Koschbasalt-Tower, it is noted that inside, not only does casting spells gets a +12 modifier, but also, that all Artifacts (no limit to Arcanovi here) ...

This is a wondrous item that does not specify that it is one time. For reference, the Feather Token does specify it is usable only one time. Another one time use item, this time for a slotted item, is the Catching Cape, which specifically states When the field is used, all magic is lost from the cloak, leaving only a mundane silvery garment.

I would have preferred to of commented on Aviose answer but don't have enough points. Our game had the same discussion and I wanted to add the point that our GM found and that convinced him.
