    The board you have has the same as 24 individual wire that run from left to right in the picture you posted. The components are usually mounted on the opposite side of the board with the leads sticking through the holes, then soldered to the copper strips. If more lines are needed, cutting through the copper foil (insure a complete cut so the two ends don't touch) will isolate sections allowing more component connections. Sometimes, after isolating a section like that, a wire jumper is used to connect it to other lines.

    If you start counting at the bottom, count up 8 positions. You have two components plugged into holes on that strip. After soldering, those two components (bottom lead of each) will be connected. The copper strip is the "wire".

    No,
    when you solder the "legs/leads" of those components poked through the other way (where you drew a rectangle around) they WILL BE connected.

    You can also get some free computer tools helping you to design the stripeboard. Hint I often use a drill bit to cut the tracks. Select a HS drill bit slightly wider than the track. Just turn the drill bit using your fingers

    I made many projects on stripboard. The parts and a few jumper wires form a printed circuit board. The soldering is on the copper side.
