That's mostly about making sure passengers have the documents they'll need to enter the country at their destination, rather than being refused and flown back to their origin at the airline's expense. They'll look for your visa if you're going to a country which requires one.

If it is an AC to AC connection, you bypass Canadian Customs and go directly to US Preclearance for your US flight. Bags do not have to be physically transferred.
If not AC to AC, then you clear Canadian Customs/Immigration on arrival, then go to US preclearance for your US departure. Bags must be physically transferred.
In either case, US Immigration is performed in Canada for your pre-cleared flight.
When you say "Ac to AC," does that include a connecting UA flight codesharing with AC? Just wondering.
