All the flights seem to be between 2-3.5 hours? This can't be right can it?

It looks to me as if the duration is the time it took to fly the yellow line path. That particular route would be about 2 hours 46 minutes. Not the entire flight.
That's my humble opinion.

Why does the tracking stop?

I know that happens a lot. Maybe something to do with leaving North American (i.e. US or Canadian) airspace or a glitch in the software. I can only assume.

It's a North-American product and the radar-coverage doesn't extend to overseas or 'foreign' radar. Hence the line just disappears. It's the same for transatlantic flights.

Quoting JAGflyer (Reply 2):
Why does the tracking stop?

In red right below the map: "At least part of this flight occurs outside of FlightAware's service area. Information on this page may be unreliable."

Check out any flights to Mexico, for instance. They stop right around the border. Flights from Texas to SA stop about 1/3 of the way over the Gulf of Mexico.
