Is it possible to create a large 4G droplet and use it just for one day? This is to stress test apps. If I create it, do I stop being billed as soon as I stop it or only when and if I kill it?

Billing continues for as long as you have it provisioned. Once you have destroyed the droplet, you will no longer be charged for it.

You are charged for any droplets on your account whether they are powered off or not, since the resources are reserved to you.
