If you have opted to share information with Google, Google uses that information, along with your Google history, to better assist you with customizations like your name and interests. You can delete your history, which will limit the personalized experience for features like the Google Assistant. You can view your history with the Google Assistant in My Activity.

Yes. If you have agreed to let Google Home do so, it will access your search history to provide you with better, more helpful answers.
