I'm a total noob and want to hear some tips so when I play matches I won't be too big a burden on my team.

Don't chase them unless you know where there team is a lot of new players will get an enemy low and chase them into their jungle without knowing where the other team is and just get instantly jumped for being greedy. Also buy wards, and when playing new characters look up what items/spells u should get on o 3rd party website mobafire or solomid.net

Practice last hitting, it's key to becoming better at the game.

All 450 champions, if you like them, are good to buy because they're rather cheap. Look at the list of free to play champions, and if any of them are recommended then play them in a bot game.

Also,
Buy boots and a couple health potions at the start, it will give you the speed to get away, the speed to catch near-dead champs and the health potions to stay in your lane longer to gain XP faster and to hold off the enemy from advancing on your turret when you recall...
Also, dont try to take on enemies by yourself. Unless your pretty powerful, know how to use your character or know for sure you can kill them, just play defense otherwise they can jump you, trick you or simply overpower you.
And, unless you have an ally on their way / waiting for a gank, there is no point in "taking down their health" if theyre going to kill you. They will just recall, your team wont get the kill and the enemy will get that little bit stronger and that little bit more gold...

Also, BE FRIENDLY!
Your team is more inclined to help you out if your nice to them in the chat. If you talk like an idiot, ping like a moron or are just rude, when you need a gank, theyre just going to leave you high and dry more often then not. Dont talk down to someone because they died, even if they have 0/x/x, its not very nice...

Last hitting is critical for every role except support. Keep track of how much CS you get and try to improve that number.

Constantly glance at the map to see if any enemy champs are missing or running toward you. Warding goes along with this.

When you pick up a new champion, read a guide on solomid.net (or clgaming.net, but mobafire is usually not too great).

Watch streamers and tournaments on own3d.tv and twitch.tv. Major tournaments will usually be linked to from the main page of leagueoflegends.com.

You will encounter many ragers and trolls in your games, but the more you resist the temptation to rage back at them, the more you will win. Be positive, give constructive criticism where appropriate.
