The answers are:

No, the console is not supposed to be there and
Yes, you can turn it off by specifying the compiler option "-target:winexe".
In Monodevelop just go the the project properties and add this option to the
additional comiler flags.

One last point:
You are right, the GUI designer is not implemented in Mono VB so far.
Please use Glade (http://glade.gnome.org/) as a stand-alone application to
design your GUI. There are implementations of Glade for Linux, Windows and
MacOS. When it's finished you can use the Glade Sharp Code Generator (see:
http://github.com/FireRabbit/glade-sharp-code-generator/tree/master) to
create a Mono VB program frame.
