Is it normal for the outside air to just come inside the car through the vents? Like...When i'm driving, it seems like the car pulls air from outside when the AC is not on and whatever air comes into the car smells like, for example the smokey car outside or the asphalt outside. I do see a big air duct right next to the opening of the hood, could that be why?

If the vents are open, that is, not in recirculating mode, then, yes. Outside air will flow through them.

There is a button on the dash that controls the dash board air vents, whether it's outside air or not. It has nothing to do with open or closed windows.
