    while the virtual machine is running, whatever ram IS allocated to it, is not accessible by the actual computer. Once you completely close/shut down the virtual machine, that ram should be released back into he actual machine.

    Set up the NIC as NAT in the VM and it should work outside the box. Otherwise Bridged should also work.
