There is relation between application and content db,like per web application one or more content db.

However you can have site collection to separate database.Multiple site collections can share a single content database. 

And Sizing done on the basis of how much Data it has. if your site collection has data more than 200 GB then you have to go for other content db 

Site collections per content database 2,000 recommended
5,000 maximum
2,000 recommended
5,000 maximum
