Yes. By default, HTCondor creates as many slots on a machine (running
a startd) as there are CPU cores. It is possible to reduce the number
slots, to have more slots than CPUs, or to change the way slots are
divided (look for "Partitionable Slots" in the manual)

Your machine will only be able to run up to two jobs at a time. If
there are more than two jobs, they will remain in the queue until a
slot is available.

HTCondor is incredibly configurable. This section of the manual may
help you get an understanding of the basics of the scheduling:
