This is just the classic rebasing game as far as I can see. If you have 
related topic brances you just have to rebase all of them at once and 
keep their existing relationships. It's described under "RECOVERING FROM 
UPSTREAM REBASE" in man git-rebase

git-svn uses svn through the standard svn configuration. As long as you 
keep the svn setup correct, git-svn will use that.
