Sounds like an interesting trip, though 2 days seems a short time to be in hanoi. I think I'd cut a day from cat Ba.
Weather is difficult to predict. I'd try to leave some flexibility so that if the weather is really bad in Hoi An you can change things. Some rain is usually fine to deal with. But there is lots you can do in Hanoi if you stay longer.

I would also cut a day or even 2 from Cat Ba, not as nice as i thought it would be in all quite a stressful time in Ha Long bay and Cat Ba be careful who you book with we had pushy rude guides and a company recommended by Rough Guides that overcharged!
Hoi An is lovely and a visit to the Forbidden Purple Palace is a must and can quite easily take a full day as for Hanoi it was my favourite place in Veitnam full of atmosphere and hustle and bustle especially round the old quarter. hope this helps

I agree with the others here - Hanoi & Sapa are the real hidden jewels in Vietnam - add days there. I was a little disappointed in both the Delta and Cat Ba Town (big time!) 4 days in Hoi An is fine. Don't worry so much about the weather - not much you could do either way there. Read up as much as possible about this country or the scams will spoil the whole trip (once you're in the know, you can avoid 90% of them!). I'm coming in Nov too for my 4th trip - most of my time will be in the Hanoi area + Luang Prabang.

"Hoi An is lovely and a visit to the Forbidden Purple Palace is a must "
FYI - I think you are meaning Forbidden Purple City which is in Hue, and which is not on the proposed itinerary.
