When "and" is used between independent clauses we call it a conjunction:
We went to the market and you went to the cinema.
Question 1: What grammatical role is "and" playing when it separates
items in a list:
We went to the market and the cinema.
Doesn't seem like a conjunction there.
Question 2: And is there still a different grammatical role in this example:
We went to the market and away from all this big-city noise.
Or is this just a conjunction with some words omitted?
(Not surprisingly, doing a google search for "and" isn't very helpful. :-) )
