In logging application block - is the actual writing to a log file is done in a different thread? Or is the writing action is serial?

The Logging Application Block is thread-safe but processing is done synchronously.  EntLib VNext is in the planning stages so you can vote for async logging (it's currently the top vote-getter): http://entlib.uservoice.com/forums/89245-enterprise-library-6-0-unity-3-0.
