Wide section header
There are two ways to get section titles whith the whole textwidth.

  1. insert the section title and then start immediately the multicolumn environment
  2. you can start the multicol environment with an optional argument, which goes always across all columns:
    \begin{multicols}{3}[\section*{Long title across all the columns}]

package multicol has the command \columnbreak for a new column: The actual one is filled with vertical space.
