They won't hatch several hours up to 24 after pipping. There is usually 1 or 2 eggs that hatch a day early. Most of your pips should be tomorrow with your hatch day as the 3rd. Probably 1 or 2 stragglers on the 4th would be a normal hatch. :)

Closing the vent will make humidity higher, and not allow for the chicks to have air to breathe.
Don't close vents at lockdown.
