Default patching drywall?

I'm renovating my kitchen in a big way. New cabinets, counters, appliances, I tore out two walls, all the floors, replaced and moved all gas and water lines, rewired everything, moved air ducts, blah, blah blah.

Anyway, I'm now putting up new drywall. The big areas are easy enough, but what about all the smaller areas where I had to tear it up to access something? I have at least a dozen 6-8" holes and also some bigger holes where I removed pipes. I was thinking about cutting a new piece of drywall to fit the hole and then going from there with mud and fiberglass tape. Am I on the right track? Anything quicker or easier?

Also, what about areas where some of the paper has torn off but everything else is intact otherwise?
