Is there only one round of Space battle with recurring sequences of battle
The Space Battle Sequence
1) Announce withdrawals/retreats
2) Roll combat dice
3) Remove casualties
4) Execute withdrawals/retreats

Or is there multiple rounds of battle until either defeat or withdrawal or retreat?

If it is multiple rounds, then the Destroyers fire at the beginning of each round and battle sequence?
Destroyer Anti-Fighter Barrage
Before the first round of Space Battle, roll two dice
for each Destroyer unit in the battle.

A Space Battle works like this:

PRECOMBAT
Stuff that happens before combat, or before the first round of combat. This includes things like Anti-Fighter Barrage, Assault Cannons, Mentak's ability, action cards that say the above, etc.

This only happens once, before the combat as a whole.

COMBAT ROUNDS
These happen multiple times, until one side retreats/withdraws, or until one or both sides are wiped out. The sequence you list is followed for this part, and repeated until done. Basically, after step 4, you check "is the battle over?"; if so, you are done, if not, go back to step 1.

Does the Letnevs racebonus for one combat round work until the battle is over (one race is left standing) or does it only work the first dice throwing?

The race card says: Before any Space Battle or Invasion Combat Round, you may spend 2 Trade Goods to give all your ships +1, or all of your Ground Forces +2 on their combat rolls for that combat round.

What I'm trying to ask is; for how long is one combat round?

One Combat Round is just one rolling of the dice.
There are very few abilities which will affect the entire space combat.
