So how many songs do you think will be on it? Im guessing probably 3.

Also, does this have anything to do with the Itunes Session?

My guess is 3. One sung by Mark, one by Tom, one by both.

I hope they abandon their pre self-titled sound for once and for all.

An EP contains a few songs (usually around 3-5 songs), and an LP is a full album. The terms are from the days of vinyl records. In the 1980's, promotional vinyl EPs were often sent to clubs and radio stations to give an overview of an artist's music, and live EPs of top-selling artists were sometimes sent to radio stations to promote the artist on tour and extend the life of an album. The popularity of the promotional EP caused labels to start manufacturing them for the general public, often in colored vinyl and with previously unseen photos used as cover art.

As for the difference between an EP and a single, CD singles have blurred the meanings a bit, but originally a single contained 2 songs: one on the "A-side", and one on the "B-side." (During the days of vinyl singles, occasionally an extra song would be included, though not often.) CD technology allowed more minutes of music than previous music formats, so labels took advantage of it and added "bonus tracks" to some CD singles. Technically speaking, a CD single with bonus tracks is actually an EP...but labels found that calling it a "single with bonus tracks" made it more appealing to consumers.

essentially a shorter album. Typically costs less than a normal album (typically referred to as an LP even if its not on vinyl).

Often they exist prior to an LP release to showcase songs that will come out on the full album but in an earlier form.

Sometimes they are extra songs recorded for an album but didn't fit alongside the rest of the album (such as Jimmy Eat World's Stay on My Side Tonight which followed Futures)

They also can exist to support a single. One song may be on an album or coming out on an upcoming album, but the other songs are b-sides or strictly songs they reserved for the EP.

Sometimes however, an EP is just a standalone release. Existing not to showcase upcoming or leftover songs, but simply as a release between albums for whatever reason the band may desire.
