We noticed that our iPhone 5 OneDrive has the main folder, 'Document' (where all is located), in the Shared folder (see pic).  Is this normal? If not, how can we take it out of the shared folder?

You login to the oneDrive account using a PC or Mac and should then be able to see who he has it shared with.  In most cases, unless it was made public, it will be shared with his login name on another device/PC.

Yes but how do we see it? I have logged in the apps and also on the web but can't seem to identify who is it shared with.

After endless hours googling, we finally found how to delete shared!

Before we deleted the share we tested by sharing a specific folder and found that folder share properties display 2 icons:

one was the user we granted the share
the other a "Anyone can share if has this link"

We assume that the share on the main 'Document'  was by the link said above.

We then proceed to delete both the user and also the link and now the 'Document' has no share.

So to close this question, why was the link there? And should we have deleted?

Please advice

I would bet that it is the default which did mean that the owner would have to send someone a link for them to access it.
