Say a certain airline (coughcoughUnitedcough) shuts down. Previous to this I have used frequent flier miles from said airline to get myself a ticket on an airline (coughcoughDeltacough) which has an agreement with the previous airline. If that airline goes under before my date of travel, will my tickets still be valid?

Most likely your ticket will still be honored if they go under. If you have a ticketed itinerary and the airline has an agreement with other carriers to honor ticketed passengers, you will be protected in the same manner as all other ticketed passengers.
