what exaclty does it do.
i bought it assuming that it would eliminate noise even while playing. Now i realized its just a gate. when i play on a light crunchy tone the noise is still there.
did i get the wrong idea?

Yup. It removes noise under a certain volume if you like. It's used to cut the hiss from distortion/over drive pedals and higher gain amps, aswell as feed back.

Only having good muting technique removes unwanted string noise while playing.

its design to suppress feedback and buzz when you leave your guitar idol [when you dont touch the strings]. If you just suck at playing it doesn't fix that for you. It basically keeps tone and suppresses noises from the amp.

That's what this pedal is for.

no its not about muting, im saying when i play on a light crunch tone, low enough where the hum is audible while playing, muting and everything the hum is still there.
so its a gate basically, it doesnt separate the noise (hum) from the guitar sound, yea?
