You can set your Global Maximum Download and Upload Rate.
Is it normal for the internet to go really slow when downloading something??

The general idea is to set your upload rate to not more than 80% of your real upload bandwidth, and your download rate to around 90% of your real download bandwidth. When you do this, the program will know exactly what are the limits and will work in those limits. This will also leave enough room for the overhead- searching for more peers, establishing connection between peers, transferring meta-data, etc. This, in-turn, will speed up your downloads and also leave room for your other activities, like surfing.
You should refer this excellent article by John T.P. on How to increase download speeds of uTorrent
Finally, you could also use a Traffic Shaping program like cFosSpeed. It's an amazing program that improves VoIP quality, ping times in online games, and best of all- makes sure that your surfing doesn't slow down when you're using a p2p program! It does all this by intelligent traffic management- do read the page on Traffic Shaping to see how cFos works.
