I think "open a copy" is the right way to do it.

When you are "selecting" you are selecting the rendered html of the notebook, and the delete key will not delete the cell as selecting google result and pressing delete would not delete them. 

The Edit > delete menu does delete the current selected cell in which your cursor is, the one with the grey border around.
There is no way to apply an action on multiple cell yet.

As for the shortcut for delete, I can confirm that it is on the Shortcut List  available in the notebook Help.
It is true that the list is long and maybe we should add separator  to distinguish a few categories and ease readability.
