Question multiple opponents / ending fights

I'm a bit new to Aikido (started a week ago) so I apologize in advance if any of these questions sound stupid.

1) How do you defend against multiple opponents?I've watched the higher ranking Aikidoka at my dojo use very fast techniques but have never seen them practice any way of defending against groups.

2) How can you end a fight? while you're pinning someone you can't defend yourself against other people and you can't pin your opponent there forever so what's preventing him from attacking you again after you let him go? Besides breaking one of his limbs or injurying him severly I don't see how you can end the fight.

Sorry if I messed up any of the terminology.
