Bitcoin Core HD Wallet

Is Bitcoin Core using a real HD wallet?
So I can backup the first wallet.dat and that's it?
(like Electrum does with the seed)

Otherwise I have to backup the wallet too often.

As long as your wallet has been created after 0.13 (If you created it between 0.13-0.16, please check if you've actually created a HD wallet!) and you have not imported any private keys.

I use the lastest version:
Bitcoin Core Version v0.20.1.

The wallet was created 2 weeks ago.
What about password change. Does this invalidate the HD wallet?

it's the old hd seed from before you encrypted the wallet for the first time. see what adolfin said in post 4 above.

the wallet is automatically created when you first run bitcoin core and is unencrypted until you set a password.
