I don't think I understand the question. SVN is the program. You seem
to be using it to denote the repository.

The basic idea is that you have a repository somewhere, and a working
copy, and SVN moves things back and forth between them. The repository
is a permanent storage system, not usable for development. "svn update"
or "svn checkout" gets things out of the repository, "svn commit" puts
things in.

The working copy is what you normally work on and make changes to. If
you don't call "svn commit" then your changes are only on the working
copy, they aren't saved to the repository until you ask.

So I think the answer to your final question is "no, nothing gets
automatically updated when you make changes".
