The outgoing mail saved as drafts issue, results when you are composing a message, Mail saves it to drafts folder on the server. You can select to save draft messages to On My Mac. You won't have access to your drafts on other devices with this option, but no more multiple drafts or a draft of a sent message.
In Gmail > Settings > Labels in your browser, select to sync the All Mail folder. In the past, many users selected not to sync this folder, but in Mavericks Mail, it needs to be enabled. Remember even sent messages are included in the All Mail folder.
Your problems are very similar to the ones in this discussion.

Thanks Diane & All, I have now been able to successfully stop the multiple drafts - yipee!
However, Apple Mail/Gmail problems persist.
The biggest one is that my emails are not being archived, even though under mailbox behaviors for Gmail I have checked save for 30 days.
Any thoughts on this one?

I'm trying to archive from Apple Mail to Gmail
I founnd this on the internet but I must be doing soething wrong because it didn't work:
In Gmail’s settings, under the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab, change the setting. When I mark a message in IMAP as deleted to Auto-Expunge off. Then, just below that option, change the setting. When a message is marked as deleted and expunged to Archive the message. Click Save at the bottom of the page. Once you tweak settings in Mail in a later step, using the Delete key on a message will tell Gmail to archive it in All Mail. If you truly want to delete a message, you can drag and drop it to the [Gmail]/Trash folder.

I decided to test Mavericks Mail with a new Gmail account today to see what the new default settings in Mail works with Gmail. It seems that all the workarounds we used prior to Mavericks are no longer needed. No root folder required. No prefix [Gmail]/ for folders.
I no longer had to use "Use this folder for Drafts, Sent, Junk, Trash". When I delete a message it actually goes to Trash not to All Mail. Yipeee!
Be sure to select All Mail folder.
