a. There should be no tuition fees from the day of submission.
b. You should have a list of corrections laid out by your examiners - that's it - you stick to the corrections, not re-write the thesis, unless the examiners have asked you. Your graduate school office also should have a list of these corrections so there is no dispute.
c. The deadline for submitting corrections is fixed.
Check your UNIVERSITY REGULATIONS.
Tip, review each correction and use track changes in Word so your examiner knows what's been amended. Corrections are tedious, but straightforward. I got 6 months to do mine. They varied from the grammatical to the conceptual.
There are many texts, models and exemplars on research through practice in fine art.
As a starting point, try Macleod, K. & Holdridge, L. (Eds), 'Thinking through Art: reflections on art as research', London & New York, Routledge, 2005.
Katy Macleod has done some important work in this area. Their references will lead you to different places.
I'm afraid twilight zone goes on and on... had viva, had party, had corrections, done corrections, corrections approved, repaginating thesis, submitting e-thesis, printing thesis for supervisors.... it goes on and on.
I'm near the end of this chain of events but there are still things to do.
Your university should have a protocol in which timeframes for thesis corrections, submissions, etc. are set out. If the exams office are onto it, there's not much you can do. Enjoy your time not thinking about them.
My examiner was super efficient and sent them to me the day after my viva. I have just submitted them but she is the sort of person who wants blood out of a stone. It never ends, even months after viva.
