I know what it is in China, I wonder if it has the same rule in other countries?

Actually I think you got that rule from the States, and it is a quite sensible rule if practiced as intended. I doubt that the rule explicitly states that you can disregard pedestrians, not even in China, but since Chinese drivers have no love for pedestrians that's how it turns out. Nothing wrong with the idea itself so long as the road is clear, then you can turn right  safely even on red lights. Being pedestrian in China is not easy though.

Another thing I've taken notice of is how noone makes way for emergency vehicles. No one's willing to give up their spot.

The yellow light can't be too long otherwise people try to run it.  Also, I got  ticket once for running a yellow light.  In the US you cannot legally run a yellow light - if you saw yellow and admit it your guilty.  Yellow is to allow a car in the middle of the intersection to pass though when the light turns to red.

No, i don't. There are reasons that the yellow light exists and anyone who can drive correctly can understand them.
