Just purchased Office 2011. I have an iMac and a recently purchased MacBook Pro. Can I load Office on both or do I have to purchase another copy?

Short answer, you need to purchase a 2nd copy. All commercial Microsoft software that is not under what is called an Enterprise license (add a couple 0's to your purchase price) is a single install only. There are a few exceptions, like "Family Pack" promotions.

Not quite true, you can install on a desktop and a laptop if you upgrade to a 2 pack

2. INSTALLATION AND USE RIGHTS.
One Copy per Device. You may install one copy of the software on one device. That device is the “licensed device.”
Licensed Device. You may only use one copy of the software on the licensed device at a time.
For Office for Mac Home and Business 2011 2 Pack:
License Rights: For software marked “Office for Mac Home and Business 2011 2 Pack”, you may install one copy of the software on the licensed device and one additional copy on a portable device for use by the single primary user of the licensed device.

The two install bit isn't an exception though, it's standard in the EULA. It's designed for, and anticipates, a desktop and mobile system. As do Adobe products. It's actually a really common licensing scheme these days.

Now, you can't RUN both simultaneously... and yes, it DOES halt the second instance if you're running one already.
