There are different levels of lockdowns in bop prisons. The most common locks everyone in their cells (or in the unit if it is low security because the individual rooms/cells do not have doors that lock). No phones, email or commissary for as long as it lasts. Prisoners may be let out occasionally for showers and meals are usually brought to each cell. Mail delivery continues, but it usually slows way down.

Some lockdowns eventually just get lifted, but others pass through "modified lockdowns" first. Those may allow short times out of the cells and limited phone calls.

Lockdowns last as long as the warden wants them to last

I don't think so, you should always be able to send money even if they can't spend it.

I moved your post to this thread as MCC San Diego is a federal prison.
Im just taking a guess and thinking they may be locked down and that is why no visits.
Hopefully someone who knows more about federal lockdowns can chime in here for you.
