Android Question Memory size of emulator

I have two questions about the memory size.

I can see the value 512 in the emulator settings. I think it means 512 MB? Right?

If so, I don't understand why my app is running out of memory.
Or better to say: It is downsampling images.

My apk file has only 5 MB.

All the apps I download from the play store are bigger.
I don't have a problem on the phone with the memory, only in the emulator.

Is there a special value I should use instead of the 512?

What size is recommended for apps and what memory size is allowed to get sure it is running on the most phones or tablets?

It is working fine on the real device. I am only afraid, because I am not sure if it runs everywhere. I dont know the memory size of older phones. Mine is 2 years old and has for sure enough memory.
