Do you think either religious people or non-religious are generally more ethical in their actions? Or, do you think this trait is largely independent of ethical action, with both groups containing good and bad individuals in similar proportions?

No one is good without their God who created them.

Largely independent, but I do think it's important to be "good without God" and be ethical for the sake of the wellbeing of other people. Not simply because you think it's what a supernatural being wants.

Atheists have some ethics that religious people don't. For example, they don't burn people at the stake. But religion defines a lot of ethics. I don't think some of their ethics are ethical however. It is all relative.
