    Could I ask what connection has been established between Helena and the Bat family, then? How much of the pre-nu52 elements of her history have been preserved? IS she close to them? DO they have any awareness of her doings? If so, are they aware of Power Girl's existence, due to the connection between the two?

Well... in theory they should be aware of her, not that she's Bruce Wayne's daughter obviously but that she is/was Helena Bertinelli - a.k.a The Huntress. She was using the Bertinelli name and had been active as the Huntress for a couple of years thereabouts, but as the series has progressed this scenario has become more and more unlikely.
With Batman taking an interest in Robin's recent adventure with her it might yet get clarified, but Helena has made it clear she likes to avoid Gotham and especially Batman, so I think the chances of the old Helena Bertinelli continuity still being valid is very slim. This does seem unfortunate, but in the new DC continuity it is nothing at all unusual as continuity and character history is an absolute disaster for the most part...

    From your comments it sounds like Power Girl and Huntress are totally unknown to both the public and the super-hero community. I'd have expected at least Huntress to be known, but maybe that's changed since Power Girl's existence is apparently a total secret.

I think the Huntress is seen as an urban legend, Helena has used the identity for quite a while but has kept firmly in the shadows and based on her mini-series just before/after Flashpoint tended to fight international Crime rather than inner city, given her origin and the fate of her parents her wanting to stay away from Gotham and the Bat-Clan is perfectly understandable.
It appears Power Girl on the other hand was largely inactive in the five years since they arrived... like Helena she wants a low profile and to stay well out of sight of Superman and any visits to Metropolis. \(coffee\)
