Once I have played all my games in a round and am out of the running for continuing/winning a tournament, may I withdraw from the tournament so that it doesn't clogg up my current tournament screen? Are there any adverse consequences for doing so? And if I have won some paltry amount of points, will I still get them?
If you've completed all games from that round and have no more left to play, then yes its safe to withdraw.
It shows on this page
You are allowed to withdraw from a tournament at any time using the Withdraw link located on the right hand side of any tournament homepage. However, withdrawing from a tournament while you have games in progress will automatically cause you to forfeit all of the tournament games on time which will negatively affect your timeout % ratio and your rating, even if no moves have been made.
I cannot find the withdraw button anywhere! Advice?
Tournament homepage, top right-hand side:
Thanks for taking the time to add a picture, but sadly that withdraw button simply isn't there in my tournament options box.
Check in "Standings" that you haven't already been eliminated.
Yeah, I had just thought of that, thanks. I feel rather stupid now...
I was on vacation and my vacation time ran out and I timed-out on all my games, so I guess it eliminated me. Thanks!
The timeout issue has been incorrect from the beginning.
It will negatively affect, if you mean it will decrease your timeout %.
Are you confused, not understanding that kohai meant that increasing you % is a negative in that "not good" sense not the "numbers (e.g. -4)" sense, or does it actually decrease your timeout %?
If a player withdraws, any incomplete games are resignations. A player's timeout ratio calculation would now include those non-timeout games so the timeout ratio will decrease.
The help entry has been wrong from the beginning.
Ah. I see.

withdraw! withdraw! the game id .
Say there are 10/100 left in the tournament, if I have finished my games from the latest round and then withdraw from the tournament I know it means I am eliminated. but does that mean I would then come in 10th or 100th?
