No, Chinese New Year has the same meaning as the international new year on 1st January, but based on a traditional Chinese calender instead of a modern international calendar. So for each year, the Chinese new year dates are different. Chinese New Year is more of a Chinese festival using traditional Chinese customs and beliefs; and not anything directly to do with religious elements. Just take it literally: it is just Chinese's New Year. Other races will have their own New Years using their own traditional calendars i.e. Malays.

No, Chinese New Year is not a religious festival; it is a new year based on the traditional Chinese calendar. Not all Chinese are Buddhists, many have different religions ranging from Taoism to Christianity. Therefore, people may worship Buddha on Chinese New Year, but it is not a custom belonging to Chinese New Year, but more of a personal practice of Buddhists.
