Does the weight of all the people, homes, and cars in California have anything to do with the earthquake activity that they have there?

Sure, but it's a tiny amount.
More important is water and oil drilling, geothermal draw, and plate tectonics.

No. California was having lots of earthquakes long before there were so many people and infrastructure there.

The earthquake activity in California is due to the number of seismic faults in California.
