How come my phone knows where I work when I've never put that in my phone!?

It said 8 minutes to get to work when I was sitting home.

    Because it is a location you have travelled to regularly at a certain time of day.

    Some mapping applications do that, to try and help you with traffic info and such.

    It knows where the journey ends and can look up that address.

    You have a "Smartphone", that is one of the "Smart" abilities it enables.
