Let's say I started a backup in the Magento backend [->System ->tools ->backups] before going home in the evening.

Can I shut down my computer while the backup (or whatever process I started) is still running or would this kill the process running on the server side?

I assume, whatever the answer may be (my guess "yes, you can shut down your computer or browser. The server will continue whatever process has been started through the backend GUI"), the same is true for refreshing/closing the browser's tab. Am I assuming right?

Yes, you are right!

The process will continue to run on server side no matter the browser closing, pc shutdown!
