'Questionnaire' and 'survey' are both defined in:

A Dictionary of Statistical Terms M G Kendall & W R Buckland (4th Ed 1982) Longman: New York & Harlow UK.

The definitions are along the lines suggested in earlier emails, except K&B point out that 'survey' is usually assumed to mean 'sample survey'. cf also, 'census'.
