The book says a reaction with a large positive EcellĀ°has K>>1. What does this mean?

If the EcellĀ° is positive, the reaction is favorable forward which means has K>1

The double >> just means that it is very favorable, it is just a way to express that it is strongly favored.

If Ecell is negative, does that meant that the reverse reaction is favorable since the forward is not?

Yes, the reaction should be favorable in the reverse direction.
