they most certainly have more than 1 server.
so they also would have multiple connections because they need at least 1 connection to each server.
they likely have hardware which can route based on traffic/congestion, so that the load is evenly distributed.

It's not a PC :-)

Read this to get a good idea of the server farm they use to implement myspace.com:

The above is largely about the software architecture at myspace.   The hardware architecture is summarized nicely here:  http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1895,1947684,00.asp

To quote from this article:

"  MySpace's extensive IT architecture currently features 2,682 Web servers, 90 Cache servers with 16GB RAM, 450 Dart Servers, 60 database servers, 150 media processing servers, 1,000 disks in a SAN (storage area network) deployment, three data centers and 17,000MB per second of bandwidth throughput."
