If you have a metered connection, it depends on who is charging you and how they measure what they're charging you for.
In most cases I'd say "Yes" they are charging you to download updates.
A metered connection is not necessarily a slow connection (although IME most of them are)
But Windows is robust enough to deal with slow connections - as long as the connection isn't disrupted while it's working.
As for Microsoft Pictures, I have no idea of what it is - and Google and Bing searches don't know it either.
