It does not.

Pretty much the same. The app running in Tomcat will be the bottleneck,
not the connector.

To repeat what I have said elsewhere on this topic:
*   If you need to encrypt the httpd to Tomcat channel, use mod_proxy_http
* If you need to expose SSL information to your web application, use mod_jk
* If you are already using one of these modules then changing is likely
to cause more hassle than it saves
* Given a completely free choice, I'd use mod_proxy_http just because
the configuration is more consistent with other httpd modules.
