Yes, that means all your elements in the XML without a prefix will be part of this namespace.

No, there will be no connection to that URL. In fact, is not really an URL, it is an URI. It's an
unique identifier. For example, if you use element <book> in your XMLs it ensures that your <book>
is not the same as the <book> element defined by somebody else. So it is used just to identify
different classes.
