How about this one.... what would result in more light output? Placing a light next to a bb so that only a small section is illuminated or walking off the light, furthering the distance between the light and the bounce and thus the subject but having the bb filled completely with light.

the actual "source" is bigger, so the light hitting the object appears to be softer.

So that should anwer your second question: as long as the original pool of light is within the boundaries of the bounceboard, you generally get the same amount of light bounced back whether the unit is close or far from the bounce. But once you pull the light far enough back that the pool spills off the edges of the bounce, you're starting to "throw away" that light and your bounce level starts to drop.
