Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

No. You must mount /dev/sdb to a specific location in the filesystem. Any files written to that location after mounting the drive will be placed on /dev/sdb, but files written elsewhere on the filesystem will still go on /dev/sda.
If you have a large directory on your filesystem, you could move that onto /dev/sdb and mount it in the original place to free up room on /dev/sda.

You could have set it up that way originally, but at this point it's going to take a lot of work (re-partitioning, reformatting, setting up LVM, etc). The system will be down while you set it up and you'll need to back up everything to another device. It will not be a quick or seamless transition.
