I need to highlight some text in ConTeXt to get something like this:

highlighted text

Concerning background colors, all I've found in the manual is some example with \framed command, which is inappropriate to me because it breaks the layout.

You can use the command \defineunderbar. See example:

\setuplayout
  [width=9.4cm]

\definebar
  [foobar]
  [color=yellow,
   rulethickness=1.2em,
   offset=1.2,
   continue=yes,
   order=background]

\starttext
There must be \foobar{a way to set the background color when I need to
highlight multiple lines of text. And then return to normal mode} without
affecting the layout.
\stoptext
