Most bittorrent clients will reward those that are sharing more (uploading) by allowing them to get more (downloading). It's kinda weird, but if you increase your upload speed, very often your download speed will increase. This isn't always the case, because there are so many factors that go into your upload and download speeds. And yes, keep that torrent file 'open' to keep seeding the show and increase your share ratio.
