Does the moon turn?
Yes, the moon turns. The moon rotates once on its axis during one revolution around the earth. If it did not rotate, then we would be able to see the entire surface of the moon from earth. The moon is 'tidally locked' with the earth, which is why its period of rotation is the same as its period of revolution.

How long does it take the sun to rotate around the earth?
It doesn't rotate around the Earth. First, if one object moves around another, it is called a revolution, not a rotation. The Sun seems to move around Earth, from our point of view. This happens once a day. However, it is actually Earth that is rotating - the Sun's movement around the Earth is only apparent.

How does the revolution of earth affect its tilt?
The revolution of the earth defines its tilt. The "tilt" is the angle between the axis of rotation of the earth and the axis of its revolution around the sun. Both these axes must exist to define the tilt. If the earth did not rotate on an axis of its own, or if it did not revolve around the sun, it would be meaningless to speak of a tilt.
