    Should I be worried about the heat that tethering causes?

    Nah its perfectly normal even while just using "3g data" you should expect the phone to get warmer specially while placing skype calls and doing intensive work.

    completely normal and don't get worried the 3g chip just has to work harder and hence the phone gets hotter

    Normal, just like you modem at home heat up during high traffic, the PA (power Amplifier) is active more than normal which cause some heat dissipation. Your battery is being drain at higher load as well,,which reduce efficiency which is equal to more heat.

    nothing to worry about, iPhone have heat sensors and it will shot down the phone if you reach any dangerous level
