The question of what happens to apps when you swipe them away from the Recent Apps list has been much debated. The bottom line is that swiping away an app doesn't actually kill the app, although from what I understand, it may stop the background process while leaving any service intact.
Here's a pretty interesting discussion about it:
There's also a comment to that article by Dianne Hackborn, who I understand is a notable Google engineer, who says this: "Actually, removing an entry in recent tasks will kill any background processes that exist for the process. It won't directly cause services to stop, however there is an API for them to find out the task was removed to decide if they want this to mean they should stop. This is so that removing say the recent task of an e-mail app won't cause it to stop checking for e-mail."
