Individual notes in a work are like words in a sentence. They are connected by slurs (curved lines) which are like sentences in an essay. Generally, unless otherwise stated, notes in a slur are played smoothly.
The level of the note might give two meanings. The more probable meaning is the pitch, its frequency. It may also denote the 'loudness' of the note: technically it is called 'velocity'.
