How long should I be able to keep yeast in the fridge after dumping
from a conical and still have it viable for re-pitching?

I would think a couple of months at least...

Though I would also advocate making a starter instead of just pitching
it as is.

It depends.  ;)

IMO, a week or two if you want to pitch it directly.  Anything more than
that and I would make a starter from it first.
