As the XAK1UAKT fields is occurring a number of time. If I have data only in four occurences then physically when it's stored, will IMS occupy the space for complete 11 occurences or just only 4 occurences?

If it is NOT at the end of a variable length segment, it will be stored in all occurences. You will need to remember to initialize those not used.
Sometimes we use variable length segments with an occurs at the very end of the segment. For instance, you would use this for monthly buckets. You would then adjust your segment length based on how many occurences you are using.
