In general, insurance follows the car rather than the driver. So, if your sister is driving your insured car and is involved in an accident, your insurance would typically be the primary coverage for the incident. However, it's important to review the specific terms and conditions of your insurance policy to confirm this.
It depends upon the kind of insurance to which you are referring. Physical damage coverage (collision and comprehensive) covers physical damage to the vehicle insured according to the policy terms. Liability insurance protects you from claims by third parties who may have sustained damages as a result of your careless in operating an insured vehicle. The scope of damages can be either property damage or bodily injury damages. Personal Injury Protection insurance (often referred to as PIP or no-fault coverage) pays a portion of your own medical expenses and lost wages if you are injured in a collision. The insurance follows the vehicle, not the driver, so if you are a driver in another vehicle, that person's insurance is the primary insurance company unless their limits are too low and then the driver's insurance company would provide excess coverage.

It may and it may not. It depends on the definitions of an "insured" driver under the terms of your insurance policy and the type of insurance policy you bought.

The concept of a "primary policy" can best be understood when there exist two or more insurance policies that arguably provide coverage for the same occurrence. The "primary insurance" is the policy that is first responsible for the payment of claims. A good example might be when a state requires that the owner of a motor vehicle to maintain what of often called "personal injury protection coverage" (a/k/a "no fault coverage"). That type of insurance pays a percentage of the injured insured's medical expenses and/or lost wages regardless of fault for the collision. If the injured insured also has major medical or hospitalization insurance, a primary/secondary insurance scenario develops. State statutory law or interpretative case law will dictate which is primary and which is secondary, but typically, the coverage specific to the occurrence (e.g. the auto-related insurance) will be primary until benefits are exhausted. Primary/secondary insurance situations may also develop when insurance is required to be maintained by the terms of a contract between two or more parties. Often, the contract specifies which (or whose) insurance will be primary.
