I have a 13 plate B Max with a 3 button remote (unlock / lock / boot) & keyless ignition.

The car locks and unlocks when I press the buttons. Does the key continue to transmit when not in use? It does not have the more recent motion sensor functionality.

Should I be keeping the key and spare in an RFID pouch to prevent hackers relaying the key signal onto my car?

I did watch a programme that said these keys transmit constantly, which is how theives are able to steal cars off driveways just by scanning for the signal.
For my own peace of mind i would store the keys as you mentioned in an RFID blocking pouch.
It's usually high end expensive cars that the theives are looking for as they give "the best return" as stated in the programme, but better to be safe than sorry.
