Message usage is not accurate. I sent 3 text messages from my phone but when I log in and check my usage it shows 8 messages sent.

Messaging usage also includes incoming texts as well, not just outgoing.

Yes, however it shows how many sent messages I had, and how many received I had.  This is for sent messages only.  If a message is long, does it count as multiple messages when logged?

Correct. Over 160 characters would create a new message. Using foreign symbols, emojis, etc, can sometimes use more than 1 character.
