Do I have to put my key in the ignition to drive the car after remote starting it from my cell phone?

Yes, even after the car remote starts, you will need to put the key to drive the car off (and also to unlock the ignition lock on the steering column, as well as to put the gear into drive for an automatic transmission car). If your car has a push to start button, you will still need to have the car key in range of the vehicle before you can drive off from a cell phone remote start. Additionally,  if an intruder gets into the car while it is remote started, you will get a door alert for the intruder breaking into the car. When the intruder tries to engage the gear into drive or step on the brake pedal while the car is running, the car will instantly shut down for security protection.
