As was pointed out earlier, your routing table indicates that the
packet should be sent out eth0.  Disconnecting a cable does not change

I think you are looking for some kind of bonding.  In general, this
type of configuration is asking for trouble.  Having multiple
interfaces on the same subnet without using bonding is bound to
confuse something.

Only if the OS sends traffic to the interface created to Open vSwitch.

These questions are not really specific to Open vSwitch.  I would
recommend doing some reading on general networking and Linux
networking in particular before trying more complicated setups.
