Can network monitoring software be enough to know if you are being spied upon by your OS/Installed programs, or not?

technically yes. If you shut down all programs and monitor your subsystems for network traffic, you can sometimes pin an unwanted connection, but it is very hard and requires a thorough understanding of all your subsystems. Keyloggers will most likely be hooked into trusted installations or will be separate but named incognito, like "system.subnetmask.trustedupdateservice" etc

Ideally you want to monitor from a gateway, not from the potentially compromised system itself.
