Answers

if your serve task contains the grunt-contrib-connect task, this one is probably setup with the keepalive option:

grunt.initConfig({
  connect: {
    server: {
      options: {
        keepalive: true  // <-- this here
      }
    }
  }
});

this means that your server is up unless you end the process by yourself.

in the concurrent-options you can enable the flag logConcurrentOutput which will print any log to your console if you want it:

grunt.initConfig({
    concurrent: {
        target: {
            tasks: ['?'],
            options: {
                logConcurrentOutput: true
            }
        }
    }
});
