That's perfectly normal.

You can't. The question is not even relevant, as it is the result of
a collective effort.

When SQL Server reads data from disk, it saves the data in the cache,
because memory access is much less expensive than disk access. Thus,
the strategy is keep as much as possible in cache.

You can constraint how much memory SQL Server can use, but only do this
on machines where SQL Server really competes with other applications.
(A developer workstation is such an example.)
