Tomato plant maintenance

Hi, me again with tomato questions. My plants are are now just over 4ft high with lots of flowering branches (are they called trusses?) they have baby toms, approx thumbnail size on some. My question now is, am I supposed to stop them getting too tall? I thought I read somewhere that they should only have a certain amount of flowering trusses and then be 'stopped' if that is the case and mine have too many does it reduce my crop?

Is there any way to deter these magpies? seriously, it is beyond a joke. They are moving things around the garden, leaving things lying around (bought in from other gardens) and EVERY day I have to pick up lots of terracotta balls that they remove from my pots and scatter around the garden . They don't even seem remotely bothered when the foxes visit!
