Some theoretical science behind the iPhone 4

Does the fact that the antenna is exposed mean that when I'm holding my iPhone and chatting on it, that I should get better reception because I've become part of the antenna?

Presumably the seams in the stainless steel are because of two different antennas, right? does something bad happen if my hand bridges those gaps while I'm holding it? if not, why did they put the gaps in?

Here's the fear mongering question: if I do become part of my iPhone 4's antenna when I hold it, am I more likely to be struck by lightning?

I guess an electrical engineer could shed some light on these questions. (no pun intended)
