We would like to limit the number of emails that is being sent from SharePoint when items are submitted for approval. In particular we don't see a need for the Task Assigned Email.

Is the Immediate Alerts timer job specifically for sending Task Assigned emails?

You don't need to stop the immediate timer job to stop emails being sent on task assignment, in stead you can go to the task lists > Actions> Settings > Advanced Settings and untick the email notification when ownership assigned.

Hope this helps
