Will I still be entitled to corporate actions such as dividends, bonus securities and rights issues?

As a lender of the securities, although there is a transfer of legal title of the securities from you to the borrower, you remain as the beneficial owner of the securities. This means that you will still be entitled to the economic benefits (such as dividends, bonus securities and rights issues) of the securities. However, you will not be entitled to any voting rights when the securities are lent. You will need to recall your securities in order to vote.
