You can't rule out possible ID's because you haven't seen flowers on your plant. Whatever it is, it's a flowering plant and would have flowers if the conditions were right for blooming. So if it hasn't bloomed, it's because something in the conditions isn't right (not old enough, not enough sun, pruned at the wrong time, etc, etc).
It hasn't been pruned in at least 10 months, it appears overgrown. The home has been vacant since then. I have shown this home (I'm a realtor) throughout the summer and there were never any blooms nor berries on it. It grows only leaves. It is located on the south side of the home, getting full sun exposure. Summer was dry, September and October were rainy. I know it hasn't been watered other than when it rained. I'm not ruling out anything, I'm just stating what I have observed.
Somehow the first plant reminds me of Murraya paniculata, although pinnate condition of leaves is not clear. This photograph also shows indications of flowers (or fruits) having fallen off or new ones above the leaves. For second photograph I would go with Lonicera (probably japonica).
