Check with your lawyer about what happened. While you may have been released and the case may have been dismissed, the case can be re-filed and the prosecution can have one more shot at it.

No - unless the case was dismissed, then you were released, but the case was continued.

This is a felony case - I can only assume you have an attorney on the case. Verify this with them.

You need to ask your attorney what happened and what the outcome is if any.
