If you import many files, they import in separate tracks underneath each 
other in Audacity, so you would have to solo each track to work on each 
one, otherwise they would all play together.

If preferred, select the second track, cut it, paste it to the end of the first 
track and remove the now empty second track and repeat as needed to
make one long track. Then make the splits between the tracks using 
labels. If using labels, read this:
http://audacity.sourceforge.net/help/faq?s=files&i=split . 

Then you would File > Export Multiple to export separate files based on
tracks (if you kept the tracks underneath each other), or based on 
labels if you made one long track.  

For burning to audio CD for use in standalone CD players, export as 
44100 Hz stereo 16-bit WAV files, not MP3 which will reduce the audio
quality. Here is the FAQ:
