It works exactly like an aeroplane, but in water instead of air.
Probably not. I would say it is either that you're now running the foil at a better angle of attack, or the kite is helping more since it is most likely higher up.

just keep riding and you will get it figured out. maybe try a bigger kite, you can't always go off the windspeed:kitesize numbers you see on this forum because they're going to be completely different for everyone
