And the 101st was a girl named Duhsala.

Edit: Yes, all the kauravas were killed in the battle. In fact, at the the end of the War, only ten warriors had survived. They were the five Pandavas, Krishna, Satyaki, Ashwatthama, Kripacharya, and Kritvarma. Everybody else died.

And Duryodhan was the eldest Kaurava and Duhshasana was the second in line. They were the leaders of the pack, and as a result, most of the decisions that were taken by the Kauravas were in fact those taken by these two (along with Karna). Another reason why these two are more famous is their active and direct role in the Vastraharan of Draupadi. It is said that Duryodhan had not an iota of goodness in him (other than his love for Karna). This makes him the very antithesis of the Pandavas. And Duhshasana was extremely loyal to Duryodhan and loved him intensely. These facts kept these two in the constant limelight.
