That's just how long it takes to get the water that is sitting in the pipe out. Unless you have a circulating pump on the line so that there is always hot water at the faucet, it always takes a bit of time for the water to get hot.

Unless there is a recirculating pump the hot water has to come from the hot water heater. Depending on how far away it is from the faucet, it can take 15 to 30 seconds for the hot water to get there. Since there is nothing in the pipe to keep the water hot, it cools down between uses.

Because hot water is still in the pipes from when you turned on the hot water, and when you turned on the cold faucet it had to let out the hot water first. This means you have a single-pipe sink. Double-pipe sinks have a pipe for hot and a pipe for cold and it blends them as it turns on.
If water is only drawn from the cold faucet, then no, the water heater is not involved. However, if water is drawn from the hot faucet- even for a few seconds- hot water IS withdrawn from the heater, and fresh cold water drawn in to be heated- even if the hot water did not make it all the way through the pipe to the faucet- and the water heater will work to heat that fresh cold water.
