How can I determine what is running in the background on my ipad?

I have had my Ipad for 6 months.  I use wi-fi and cellular 250MB data plan.  I have never exceeded 250 MB in a month.  This month I ran out of data in 5 days.  Also, I usually get a couple of days before I have to recharge.  Now I need to recharge in less than a day.  The only thing I can think is something is running in the background.  Is there a way to see what is running in the background (this is my first apple product, I have always used windows products so I am not sure I am using the apple nomenclature),  I have rebooted so I will see if that fixes the problem.  I am curious to see what is happening in the background.

Press the HOME key twice quickly.

All the tasks in memory are displayed in the bar at the bottom of the screen.

The bar is scrollable left and right.

Press and hold one of the icons and a   "-" displayed on each icon which you can press to terminate each active task.

Shut off your 3G (go to settings) when you have access to wi-fi, so it will access the wi-fi rather than the 3G.
