We have a rectangle ABCD that is NOT a square or rhombus. The diagonals cross at E. If area of AEB is 44, is the area of AED also 44?

Yes - Assume sides of AEB are 8 and 11 then 8*11/2 = 44 the area of the rectangular is 8*11 = 88.

So the area of AED is 88-44 = 44.

the area of AED and AEB will be different only if the sides of the rectangular are both odd numbers (i.e 5 and 13).
