Do you mean you have a black screen or the monitor physically turns itself off?

It might not be a bad idea to recreate your USB installer. If you are to do this I would recommend you do the following:
  1. Delete the Mojave installation app form the Applications folder on the Mac/Hack you are using to create the USB installer.
  2. Delete the app from the Trash.
  3. Re-download the Mojave app from the Apple Store.
  4. Use Disk Utility to Erase your USB Drive or use another USB, with eh following settings:
    • Name: Untitled
    • Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled)
    • Scheme: Guid Partition Map
  5. Use the 'CreateInstallMedia' Terminal command to restore the Mojave app to your USB Drive.
    • sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled
  6. Install the Latest version of Clover to the USB, using the following selections:

Screenshot 2019-06-22 at 15.57.06.png Select Continue

Screenshot 2019-06-22 at 15.57.24.png Select Continue

Screenshot 2019-06-22 at 15.57.44.png Select 'Change Install Location...' button

Screenshot 2019-06-22 at 15.58.21.png Make sure you select your Mojave InstallUSB drive

Screenshot 2019-06-22 at 15.58.34.png Select the 'Customise' button

Screenshot 2019-06-22 at 15.58.50.png Make sure the top two options and the bottom option are selected.

The other elections do not matter as we will be using a pre-configured CLOVER folder.

Screenshot 2019-06-22 at 15.59.23.png Select install, enter your password when requested.

Once completed Clover will have been installed to your Mojave Installation USB drive, with the EFI Partition for the USB mounted on your desktop.

Screenshot 2019-06-22 at 16.22.30.png Open the EFI Partition and then open the EFI partition

Screenshot 2019-06-22 at 16.24.04.png Copy the Clover Folder we have created to the EFI Folder, overwriting the one that is presently in this folder.

You USB installation drive is now ready for use.

I will have another look at your CLOVER folder and provide one for you to use, once you have recreated your installer drive and installed the latest version of Clover to the EFI Partition.

Here is a revised CLOVER folder for you to use. I have changed a number of items in your CLOVER folder and your config.plist, which should work better with macOS Mojave 10.14.5.

Try it and let me know how you get on.

I have attached a revised configv2.plist for you to use, as well as a revised kexts folder.

The config.plsit has a number of small changes including adding 0x3E928086 as the Fake ID for IntelGFX.

The kext folder contains two additional kexts,
  • FakePCIID.kext and
  • FakePCIID_Intel_HDMI_Audio.kext
I hope these changes/additions will help you get through the installation.

okay back to the boot freeze (installing from USB), it freezes at 2 minutes remaining but this time the fans are going and they are loud.
