As a general rule of thumb yeah. Inactivity is a killer, literally. You can never retire from physical fitness.

Yup. I remember being depressed a few years back and spent all day everyday for a week on my pc and didn't exercise or even try to do anything else. It was in rough shape. Even my 30min walk to work which is a non issue, gave me trouble as my legs got weirdly sore and my feet were killin me

Yes! Don't discount the article just because it seems obvious, though - part of science is also quantification.

This paper is about a much more specific question than just "is it better to not stay still for a long time" or whatever you think you're being clever about. Actually bother to read the abstract at least.
