Yes they will know that you went back to work full time when the temp agency sends in your 2 days worth of the unemployment insurance they had to pay. No, you likely will not continue qualifying for benefits since you voluntarily left a full time position. Chances are good you could get away with claiming benefits for some time, but eventually it will come back to bite you when you have to repay the benefits you improperly received.You cannot start a new claim, because 2 1/2 days of work is not enough to qualify for a new claim, and also because you can only start a new claim once every 364 days (52 weeks). You can only collect from the old claim, and you may do so only if you tell VEC what happened and they agree that you had a good enough reason for quitting.
You are allowed to work limited hours and still draw unemployment only if you report that you worked those hours and you report how much you earned. If you do not report both those things, then you are not allowed to draw unemployment.
If you do not report that you worked and the temp agency pays you, then VEC will know that you lied (and that you did work) because the temp agency tells VEC them who it paid.
If you report that you worked that week, and report that you did not work the next week, then VEC will ask you why. You must tell them the truth. Depending on your reasons for quitting, they may or may not stop you from collecting on the old claim. It is important to tell the truth, and they will attempt to veirfy your answer.
