Is it breaking up or not - I don't know because there are so many conflicting opinions.
I suppose it depends on what you call proof. Can you provide 100% proof that your parents are really your parents?

Why not believe Leonid Elenin?
Why not believe Rob McNaught?
Why not believe Michael Mattiazzo?
Why not believe any of the astronomers who have seen and photographed Elenin?
Why should I believe his parents and not them?

Latest science says it does appear to have broken up. Even its discoverer Leon Elenin has commented on its break up.
Because the pieces are in the vacuum of space and the forces upon the comet are unchanged, they are not, essentially, changing direction, slowing down, speeding up or anything similar. The comet is just becoming softer and fuzzier as moves on its original orbital trajectory.
Not at all.
Velocity = mass * acceleration... so less mass because is breaking up, then less velocity. Simple physics.
