Quitelikely the "weatherstripping" type material that creates a seal between the door and the fridge itself is damaged, causing moisture in the air outside your fridge to cool and collect inside. This can be replaced easily. You may also have a feature on your fridge to reduce moisture (sometimes represented on the interior controls as a droplet icon). Turn this feature on until conditions normalize.

What causes water to form inside your refrigerator?

The seal around the door is bad. When the refrigerator doesn't have a complete seal around the door it allows ambient air to get in. When the compressor runs to the temp average inside, it actually is vacuuming slightly inside the unit and exhaling. Means it is pulling outside air in through the door seal. Moisture in the air condenses inside the refrigerator and puddles on the bottom.

Is the air inside a refrigerator typically less humid than the air the refrigerator?

I assume your question should end with "than the air outside the refrigerator". If so then the answer is yes. Most of the humidity in the air inside the fridge (and freezer) will condense onto the cold surfaces. As new air is introduced, either by opening and closing the door, or leaving the door ajar, or thru a leaky door seal, more moisture condenses, these are some reason why a freezer will ice up quickly.
