The toilets refill because water is leaking past the flapper. In your case, you are running some water or turning water off right when the toilets are ready to refill and your action "jiggles" the ballcock to start. The toilets are also refilling at other times but you have not noticed yet. Get them repaired.

Did every roman house have a toilet?

No, Romans generally had to use public toilets: insulae (apartments) and other typical Roman dwellings did not have their own toilets.
