The file is written to the directory where you execute the command. I would recommend to put it in the corresponding project root and add it to git or any other SCM in use.

One way to know the list of packages for a specific conda environment is to follow a two-step process:
conda activate <env_you_are_interested_in> # First activate the environment
conda list # List linked packages in a conda environment. See conda --help | grep list

PS: Will be happy to know if there is an alternate way which does not require to activate the env.

I think that for activating a conda env
conda activate <environment-name>
rather than
activate <environment-name>
