    That's two different things.
    Background refresh is to keep the app from maintaining a refresh cycle.
    Notifications alerts you and that's a different setting individually. Some examples:

    so it means there is no method to disable all notification in one

    the only way is to disable it 1 by 1 in this following page

    It depends on what you want to do.
    When I go to church I don't want notifications to sound but I still want them coming in so I toggle silent.
    If I don't want notifications from an app I specify that individually. A discrete setting.

    so if I press the silence switch ( the button on the left side of iPhone ) , the notification will cancel and thus saving some battery from background ?
    It doesn't silence everything.

    (Ringer Switch) What the Ringer Switch Does Mute:

    Phone-call ringtones
    Text-message alert tones
    Notification alert tones (from iPhone apps and third-party apps)
    Calendar alerts
    Reminders
    Camera sounds (snapping a photo)
    Game music
    What the Ringer Switch Doesnt Mute

    Alarms from the Clock app (example, setting an alarm to go off at 6 am).
    Timers from the Clock app (example, setting a 15-minute countdown timer).
    Audio from the iPhones Music app (example, playing the Beatles Hey Jude).
    Audio from the iPhones Video app (example, playing an episode of Lost).
    Some audio from third-party apps like streaming radio, video, and music (examples, playing a radio station via the TuneIn Radio app or a video in the YouTube app).
    Tones when tapped in the iPhones various settings (for example, when changing your ringtone or text-message alert tone) and in the Clock app (for example, when selecting what sound the iPhone will make when the timer runs down to zero).
    Tones when changing the volume of Ringer and Alerts in Settings>Sounds
    A sound alert when sent from the Find My iPhone service.
