What is the shortest time that can be tracked per week? I'm asking because we have long-term and recurring jobs, but there might be weeks with only 10 minutes of work or so. Will that be okay with upwork and is it okay for the freelancers?

There is no minimum as such, I have several contracts that go for weeks between work.
The minimum that can be tracked per session is one segment, which is 10 minutes.
That said the tracker will count any segment with activity, so if the 10 minutes are 10 minutes across everal days, you may well get charged several segments. This would really be also fair because even a task that by itself take 2 or 3 minutes, still takes time to get to and so on, maybe communicate with the client, load the tracker, write a memo and so on. So those two or three worked minutes grow to 10 real quick.
