I have a problem keeping my beer at a good fermentation temp. I use a space heater to get it up to temp and forgot about it twice. The stick on thermometer read over 80 degrees but I'm still getting activity. What kind of effect will this have on the beer? And how acurate are those thermometers?

If it was in the first 72 hours than you will have more than likely have some off flavors.

No, this was in the secondary. Today all activity has stopped. Now I don't know if the yeast has died or it's just finished. What is the issue if the yeast has died? Other than incomplete fermentation?
