I suspect that there's a problem with your IE7 installation. Removing it and installing the latest available build "may" solve it.
1) No, this is not normal.
2) It is probably the fault of IE7
3) RAM is relatively cheap now - another 512 mB shouldn't be more than $40 US
4) IE7 is still beta software. As such, you can expect some problems with it. It's to everyone's benefits to report these problems with beta software to Microsoft. That way they can iron out the code before releasing the final version.
5) Generally speaking, with sufficient RAM it won't access the pagefile at all. BUT!!!
There are programs that do require the pagefile to operate - quite a lot of games do this. I haven't checked on IE7's use of the pagefile so I don't know if it does or doesn't use it.
