Personally, I have yet to find a useful way to graft activities into my
workflows (which historically were always work-space based/categorised).
The Plasma default setting is to switch between Activities with
<Meta>+Tab, but this being KDE is of course configurable.
Frustratingly, the good old <Alt>+Tab seems to trump anything and
everything I try to achieve leaving me feeling that I have just taken a
25 year backwards-step.
You should be able to have the same number of workspaces available to
you within each activity.
