Does swiping apps actually close them? I thought it just removed them from the recent programs list.
Good question and I don't think we know the definitive answer to that. My experience has been that for some apps, it actually does close them, for others-no it does not. For me, the best way to close an app is to back out of it from inside that app. It will still show up on your most recent app list for easy access but at least won't be running in the background.

Yes it does.. on most... to find out, swipe the app, then go into manage apps, running apps, and see.
If you want to be totally sure, just go into running apps and stop the apps there..
