Not all documents contain surname and given names as separate fields. Quite often there is just a single field where surname and given names follow each other. So surname and givenNames fields exist in the retrieved document data only when they exist in the user document as separate ones.
All binary data like content of images, attached documents and so on are returned in base64 format and will need to be decoded.
