Hi, I am new to bitcoin mining and am trying to understand several concepts that I have not been able to find in internet.
I have an Antminer S7 and have set up a pool. the pool is finding a couple of blocks a day, so I would like to understand what my miner is doing when it is working? is it always creating hashes to try to resolve the BTC blocks that are generated each 10 minutes? or it splits is time between creating hashes to solve new blocks and validate the already solved blocks?

Solving a block validates the transactions inside it.  Your miner is hashing away trying to solve a block which will then confirm all the transactions within.  There is no splitting of time or anything like that.
Mine On!  Cool

It is always trying to solve the blocks which you connected with the mining pool. Your bat file will show you mined blocks and then hashes will be used to solve the blocks that is how every miner hardware doing its work.
When the heating is increased your temperature meter will give you the way to understand that you have to reset when it reaches to high temperature. This is only you have to do from your apart from managing the miner set up.
