Q.

Should I understand that "à" and "de" can be applied to all the verbs depending if you are going to or coming from somewhere or is it so that each verb goes only with one of these prepositions?

This relates to:
À + le = au, à + les = aux, de + le = du, de + les = des (contractions of articles) -

Bonjour Vili ! It applies mainly to the verbs "venir" (to come), "aller" (to go) and "être" (to be), just like in English, and yes you will use either "à" to express "to/in", and "de" to express "from". I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !
