The log of a newly created branch

In the lecture video,

$ git checkout branchname 

can switch to a branch.

It says this command will checkout the latest commit for that branch. Does this mean that the log of this branch will only contain the latest one commit of the master branch?

I had four log in my master branch. After that, when I switch to a new branch, the new branch contains the latest two logs of my master branch. I don't see why this happen?
