I just have a small requirement where in i have a list A and i want to copy all the existing items from list a to another list b.
Then, when a new item is created in list a it should also get created in list b.
How do i achieve all of this?

First of all, make sure that list B has same fields as list A to copy data from list A to list B.
For copying Existing items:
Use following sources to save list template and create new list using list template:
To Copy newly created items:
Using SharePoint Designer, create a new workflow (Workflow -> List workflow). Specify the list to attach the workflow to(list A).
Navigate to workflow setting and specify that the workflow should start on item creation only.
Add an action: Copy list item and specify the list to copy to(list B).
Are you in a position to use Microsoft Flow to implement this ? You can create a flow on Manual trigger that gets all item from List A and creates the items in List B in a loop. This will be one time
You can have a second flow on "When a list item is created" trigger on List A. Everytime an item is created, you can create an item in list B
