I don't believe there are ANY limitations regarding the hours of a salaried employee. So no, it isn't illegal to require a salaried employee to be on call ALL the time - even when on vacation.
Certainly, IF you had been called to work an exorbitant amount of times so as to have effectively reduced your wages, then you would have quit long before now.
Yes, your new supervisor can ask you to keep track of your hours. However, since hours have no bearing on your salary, I'd certainly ask him why he wants to know.
If you're getting the sense that they're going to can you, you're probably right.
