You can use gr:category multiple times for indicating multiple categories per product; those can be either hierarchical or flat strings:

<div typeof="gr:SomeItems vso:Canoe" about="#product">
  <span property="g:name">ACME Foldable Canoe</span>
  <div property="gr:category" content="Outdoors/Boats/Canoes"></div>
  <div property="gr:category" content="Sports"></div>

I recommend using one of the two properties foaf:depiction or schema:image. You can attach it either to the gr:ProductOrService or the gr:Offering.

Note that at this point Google does not show product images in Rich Snippets.

<!-- in RDFa 1.1, you can use the abbreviation:

<div xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#"
  <div about="#offering" typeof="gr:Offering">
    <div property="gr:name" content="Canon Rebel T2i (EOS 550D) $899" xml:lang="en"></div>
    <div rel="foaf:depiction"
