Short...
Yes, but a local server.
Yes.

Long...
Locally I'm running apache2 and set up each project as a virtualhost 
subdomain, like
project1.example.com
project2.example.com
project3.example.com
project4.example.com
and so on and then update my hosts file to point those subdomains to 
localhost.

My directory stucture looks something like this
/home/example/www/com/project1
/home/example/www/com/project3
/home/example/www/net/project2
/home/example/www/org/project4

Also, I have a similar setup on my win32 box.
D:\W\com\project1
D:\W\com\project3
etc...

Each folder is an eclipse project, and I have bazaar (or subversion) 
ignore the eclipse files (.project, .settings, .cache, etc).  I don't 
use Eclipse's workspace directory for anything project-related.

As for how they map to the live sites, they don't in any specific way.  
Each project has a different directory structure due to differing 
servers/needs.  I handle those differences in configuration files.
