Yes, when there is only one window open, Close and Quit TW is the same.
I also think that leaving TW open, even without blank document would be
nice; but perhaps it is not so easy to implement.

About typesetting the main document while your are in a sub-document you
can add at the very beginning of the sub the line:
% !TEX root = main_name.tex and just typeset from there.
There are other instructions like this you can add, see the manual :-)
