Opening links in new windows is generally frowned upon, simply as being rude - web browsers give users the option to open in a new window anyway, so to force the choice is unnecessary.

However, from a technical point of view, multiple windows will not cause a new user session to be created - from a Moodle perspective, it is no different to opening that same page in the current window (in fact, if it saves the user later pressing 'back', then a page load is saved and so the server load is very slightly reduced).
