Apache connections limit

Do Apache connections close once a server serves a web page for a given request? Also, if you are hosting all your static assets (JS, CSS, images, etc) on the same server as your site, how does that affect Apache connections? I was reading about the MaxClients Directive and these questions came to mind.

An HTTP request theoretically closes when the response is finished, although problems between the browser and server could cause the connection to remain open (like sending an HTTP 1.1 response for an HTTP 1.0 request).

Also, if you are hosting all your static assets (JS, CSS, images, etc) on the same server as your site, how does that affect Apache connections?
I'm not sure what you're specifically asking, but Apache will handle any requests that come in over an open connection. Browsers will limit the number of connections to a specific host, which I think defaults to a max of 2 connections at a time.
