I think relations between various Space Marine Chapters very much depend on the individual Chapters. Some Successor Chapters have no communications with their Founders, such as the Mortifactors and the Ultramarines that you mention, while others maintain closer ties to their origins, such as for instance the Dark Angels and their Unforgiven Successors, who often exchange information on the subject of the Fallen and work together to round them up.

Some Space Marine Chapters that do no share the same Primarch also sometimes collaborate, though I think it’s rare for them to maintain much contact after their common goals have been reached. Space Marine Chapters are pretty much designed to be self-sufficient units and rarely need to call for help from others, so regular communications between Chapters are rarely necessary longer than the duration of a specific campaign.

As for the novel ‘Warriors of Ultramar’, it was actually aptly named. The title refers not to the Space Marines themselves, but to the human defenders of the planet Tarsis Ultra which is in fact not located inside the Ultramar system controlled by the Ultramarines. If I remember correctly, it is Sergeant Learchus of the Ultramarines that praises the fighting spirit of the planet’s defenders by calling them true warriors of Ultramar, in spite of them not actually being Ultramarians, because their courage and discipline honour the battle traditions first laid down by the Ultramarines’ Primarch Roboute Guilliman.
