baked chicken vs roasted chicken

If both are cooked in the oven, are pieces considered baked and a whole chicken considered roasted? Or if the chicken is "suspended" as in sitting in a rack of some sort, does that make it "roasted"??

I made a roasted chicken last week. I use a vertical wire rack. But we always only end up eating the breast meat. I'd like to make just the breast meat (with the bone and skin). If I bake it, will I get the same crisp skin? and what the trick to NOT drying it out?
