You can use screen to have multiple windows doing different tasks with [ctrl+a][c], use [ctrl+a][n] or [ctrl+a][p] to move across your windows. You could deatach the screen session with [ctrl+a][d] and then log outfrom your server. Come back when you need to, and attach again to your screen session with screen -x.
You also may want to check the screen-profiles package, it provides great setups for newcomers, and for the advanced users aswell. Screen also has an extensive man page which explains probably everything you need to know.
