    It it possible to log into my account on a https secure website without the host knowing I am logged in if all I do is browse my account history?

    If by "the host" you mean the server hosting the service, no you can't. You need to identify yourself to the service in order to be logged in, so you are not "invisible" anymore.
    Also, https makes data encrypted on the way between your PC and the HOST, so the host sees data unencrypted.
    I hope I have answered your question.
