How to manage branches?

We're using SVN in a small team for several weeks now.
In the meantime there are a lot of branches and we need to know, which branch already merged, and which not.
I know that in the SVN book there is a tip that we shall type in the branch as a comment when merging.
This is good to know what is already in the trunk, but there are two open problems:
(a) There is stall a lot of branches in the 'branches' folder. Actually there are so much branches that we tend to have no more overview. We don't want to remove the branches since we might need them in future (e. g. to merge into another branch), but actually having 50 branches in that folder is not concise.
(b) How to *fast* get a list of branches that had not been merged into trunk?
How do YOU handle this?
We're glad for every tip! :-)
