This will vary depending on how your policy is written. Some policies will only cover pipes bursting, while others will only cover catastrophic water damage (flooding due to abnormal circumstances). You need to call your insurance agent to find out.

water damage is only covered through full coverage if you have it and just so happens to run in a pond or something.

It depends on the peril, the policy form, exclusions etc. You need to turn in your claim to get this answer. If the peril/loss is covered it should also cover (barring any exclusion to the contrary), damage that resulted from the water damage.
