1. If I leave my prints in a photo album, everything covered by
plastic, which one would last longer. Canon or the Ofoto print.
My guess is that the Canon would last longer.

Not likely. Canon inks are notorious for fading fast. HP and Epson latest ink will outlast Ofoto's prints.

2. If I leave my prints on the wall under glass, which one would
last longer. My guess is Ofoto.

If you are comparing Canon and Ofoto again, that's probably correct.

3. If I leave my prints on the refrigerator, low light but no
protection, I suppose Ofoto will be better than Canon.

Most likely

4. Suppose I get an Epson pigment printer, epson pigment ink,
epson paper. I suppose Epson will last the longest in scenerio 1,
2, and 3 above.
