I have in a while loop a drawing function for the console. This gets a STD handle to the console but never releases it. Does it need to be released? I played around with DirectX before and I had to release every handle I got, so I am wondering if its the same case for a console.

No, you dont have to release it. This handle stays around for the whole lifetime of the console window - GetStdHandle just gives you access to it.
