    Yes, you cannot have two state divers licenses in any state. They gave you a temporary Texas license until the real one comes in the mail. You have no need for a California license in Texas. The same thing would happen in Oregon, or Arizona or anywhere else.

    You only get one. If they issued you one there's probably an agreement between the states that they'll destroy the old one.

    It's to keep people from using their old one when the new one gets suspended for DUI, etc.

    because you can't have two licenses

    yes. If your CA license has not expired, you could theoretically use it fraudulently.
