Gerund of verb?


Sentence: Lately, my friend and I have been shopping a lot.


In the above sentence I see that "have" and "been" are verbs, but does the complete main verb also include "shopping"?


Is shopping an activity in this case, so a noun (gerund), or is the action being helped by the helping verbs "have" and "been"
