    All the apps that appear there...are they running? Do these affect battery life if they are in that section? I had almost 10 things down there. I stumbled upon this.

    It's your most recently used apps. Handy shortcut to switch back & forth.

    Presence there doesn't say anything about running or not, some are possibly running (e.g. Music apps can play in background, GPS apps can navigate in background) and some aren't.

    Here's an Apple article regarding multitasking:

    iOS: Understanding multitasking

    Don't know if you'll find it useful or not so I figured I'd post it for you.
