It depends upon the league/sport. In the NFL, for example, the team with the best overall record wins their division. In the event of a tie, the division record acts as the tiebreaker. I believe the best conference record wins the conference in NCAA Football, regardless of overall record. Then there are the league like the NHL, where a team earns 2 points for a win, 1 for a tie or post regulation loss--with the team accumulating the most points winning their division/conference.
The team with the best overall record wins the division. Division records only come into play for determining tiebreakers.

Each League has four teams advance to the playoffs. These teams are the three division winners and a fourth team that has the best overall record of the teams that did not win their division. This team is called the 'wildcard' team. Usually in the first round of the playoffs, the wildcard team plays the division winner with the best overall record and the other two division winner play each other. These series are called Divisional Series and a best of 5; the first team to win 3 games wins the series. The winner of those series play each other in another series, called the Championship Series, with the winner going to the World Series. The Championship Series is a best 7 (first team to win 4 games wins the series) and the World Series is also a best of 7.
No. A team's overall win-loss record is used to determine who makes the playoffs. Divisional win-loss record is a criteria used in breaking some ties when it comes to playoff eligibility but is not the sole criteria used in determining who won a division. If two teams finish tied for first place in a division at the end of the season, divisional win-loss record is the second tie breaker used, after head-to-head win-loss record, to determine the division winner. But a team that won all of their divisional games and lost all of their other games would wind up 6-10 and not make the playoffs. No. The team with the best overall win-loss record in the division wins that division and receives an automatic playoff berth. In the event of a tie between two teams, the team with more head-to-head wins over the other team is declared the winner. If there is still a tie, the team with the better overall division record is declared the winner.

The tie breaker for divisional teams with the same overall record (13-3 in this case), is the won-lost record within the division. In this case, it doesn't matter that the team with the 4-2 divisional record suffered both those divisional losses at the hands of the team with the 3-3 divisional record, the 4-2 team wins the division. Only if the divisional records were tied would the head-to-head matchups come into play.
No. The first tiebreaker is the overall win-loss record. A head-to-head sweep would only come into play if the two teams had identical win-loss records.
