Microphones don't record video.

You buy a mic. You buy a webcam. Most webcams have software already for the video. Disable the webcam's mic. Record video. Save video file Download Audacity. Hit record for audio. Save audio file. Open video editor. Import both audio and video files. Time them to match up (usually webcam recordings have a countdown, so you can easily hit record on the webcam, wait the 3 seconds for the countdown, and hit record on Audacity to automatically have them in sync anyway. Otherwise just edit until they sync up) There you go.

It depends. Many times the video and audio are not captured together, but combined during editing. Sometimes the the mic (and all the other vocals and instruments) fee into a an audio mixing board and one or two of the monitor outputs is connected to the camcorder. There are a few other ways... and it depends what you mean by "professional microphone", how the mic connects to the recording device (USB or XLR) and lots of other items...

1) they have a camcorder that accepts the feed from an external Microphone 1A) if they have 1, then before the feed to the camera, they would a Mixer, all Microphones would connect to the Mixer, then the out from the mixer would go to MIC jack on the Camcorder. 2) they record the Video and the Audio separately, then take the Video and Audio files back to the computer, where they put these files on hard drive, then Open a good, top end Video Editing Program, Like Pinnacle Studio or Sony Vegas or such. By using this, they match the audio signal attached to the Video file with the Audio capture by the microphone, which with the High End Video Editing Program is not at all hard to do Visit for more info on syncing Audio and Video

I use a canon 5D mark iii for amazing videos, and a zoom H1, as an external mic. I simply use an AUX cable to plug the H1, into the 5D. Amazing sound! All you need is to plug the mic into the camera, no need to editing or struggle with syncing the video with the sound! It's all done in one go.
