Could be a browser push. If you have subscribed to a push service -- such as fox news alerts, one of the weather push services, etc. -- then that would be it. In case you don't know whether you did or not, or maybe a previous user did, then open the browser, open bookmarks, and scroll down to the bottom. See if there are any push bookmarks. I don't remember exactly what the folder name is, so see what is there.
If it is a browser push, you will get the browser profile alert when the update is received. To undo it, you will have to unsubscribe from the service, whatever it is.
If you are browsing and select to save a request, the page will finish downloading to the message folder and you will get a browser profile alert when finished downloading. You could be doing that by accident somehow. If so, you will see the page headers in the message folder.
On your other question, the BlackBerry is essentially always connected. You pay for the data transmitted and received. You can close the browser by selecting close from the menu or holding down the back button. But the thing to watch out for are apps, particularly third-party apps, that run all the time (or may be set to run in the background when closed).
