multivariate vs multiple regression

#1
I feel that these two terms are often abused. Multivariate regression is the analysis which deals with many dependent variables, while multple regression means more than one independent variables and can control for other variables. Am I right? Or there is no difference anymore??? Thank you.

Yes, you are correct.

Multiple regression = one dependent variable, several independent variables

"Multivariate" regression (more than one dependent variable) is more commonly referred to as canonical regression.
