Design Contracts and Titles Questions

I am new to freelancing and do frequent Graphic Design for a small business. They come to me when they need a design, but I am not technically and employee of theirs and have some questions. I have traditionally just done verbal agreements because I have been working with them since college and we have a good relationship so we trust each other, but I want to take things up to a professional level. So I have some questions.

1. When I do a contract for a design, do I do a separate contract for each design, or can I do a single contract for multiple designs?
2. What exactly am I to them? Business partner, contractor, etc...?
3. How do I write a license agreement? Is a license agreement the right thing to do?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
