CHKDSK needs to have the disk entirely to itself, so that it can analyse the directory structures and file allocation information (and repair them if need be). It wouldn't work if it was trying to repair a moving target, and Windows wouldn't work if some other pesky process (chkdsk) was moving bits of files around on disk that Windows was using (and had directory info cached in memory etc).
Windows mounds and dismounts data volumes the same as any other operating system. On a system with only C: this happens early in the boot sequence and the C: remains mounted until very close to final shutdown. Things like the registry and swapfile are open all of the time. Other drives might be mounted and dismounted whilst the system is running. - Think USB stick - they get mounted on insertion and it is good practice to dismount them before removal - Windows dumbs the term down and calls it "Safely Remove" in the UI (rather than dismount)
Finally on a Windows system - Many processes are running all of the time... Anything that has a file open or a handle to a folder will lock the volume against dismount. The C: is always locked, as Windows is always running... Even having an explorer window open to a volume can sop dismount of a volume. Additionally badly written software might not properly close files that have been used and make Windows think the volume is still in use. So a lot of thinks might block a volume form dismount.
