Messages vs. Conversations?

Once or probably twice in the past few days I have been involved in a "conversation" without realizing it is not another name for a private message.

Can someone explain how this works? The first time, the conversation was initiated by someone else. I went to another place on my computer to look up an answer, then couldn't find the conversation to reply (I was thinking it was just a new name for a private message). The second time, I initiated a conversation with someone else, still not realizing it's not the same as a private message.

1) do conversations disappear when you leave the page?
2) how exactly (and not accidentally) do you get into conversation mode (or avoid it) vs. messaging mode?

Public profile, visitor messages tab. It's nice for chats - saves the PM box space.
