How does Cloudflare connect to my hosting server?

I am just wondering how Cloudflare connect/send traffic to the hosting server.
The traffic goes via Cloudflares nameservers to Cloudflare, then Cloudflare send the traffic via my hosting nameservers to the server.
Does it work like that?

Not via your host’s nameservers, they are completely out of the equation if you use Cloudflare and you only use Cloudflare’s. You have to set up your DNS records on Cloudflare for that purpose and that’s also how Cloudflare knows where to forward requests whenever it receives one.
