A)Can someone please tell me the configuration of the runways (maybe some major taxiways) at KJFK, as well as their general use.(takeoffs, landings)

B)Yesterday, at KJFK, I observed various landings on runway 31R (landing from the south/southeast). I also observed a small, regional-type turboprop plane take off from 31R. All other planes were taking off from the runway nearest to the Delta terminal. Since there was a long line for takeoff, i was wondering: why dont they(JFK) use 31R for takeoffs to ease congestion on the other one?

31R is just used for landings. Except for Eagle Flights which are really close to that runway.
