Remove from heat generally means to take it off the burner. It is
usually not enough to simply turn the burner off. Some burners stay hot
for a long time. I used to have solid burners. They took a long time to
heat up and an long time to cool off. It might be different with a gas
stove because pots and pans tend to be slightly elevated, but the
brackets on top will retain heat.

I guess that it depends on what you are cooking. Some things tend to
burn easily or solidify. It may just be the author's use of words.
Before you ask "stir constantly" generally means to stir constantly :-)
