AF on

Newbie here. 
Touch AF ON

Get green box

take finger off button and compose shot

Green box goes away and I get a red box

I assume this is correct because that way you can move your focus box around again and hit AF again

Not sure what you mean by correct? In AF-S, the box turns green as your finger touches screen but turns red again upon release. It’s not very intuitive to be honest because the moment it is green is so brief that you really don’t even notice it, but it can make a confirmation beep.

Note that when in AF-C, it’ll continue to focus as long as your finger is touching the screen (but you can’t move box around while touching the screen).
