That doesn't sound right--the backup lights should only come on when the transmission is in reverse. As for the turn signals flashing rapidly, you need to replace the flasher with an electronic flasher. The regular flasher is being fooled into thinking a lamp is burned out.

I got these lamps for my backup lights a while back. They were like $12 and only have 30 LED's, while the ones you got have 68 LED's. I was disappointed that mine were not brighter:
