I checked my prof on ratemyprof and he apparently teaches at 4 different campuses: 3 campuses for one university and at another campus for another university.

How does that work?

He has a busy schedule.

I know a prof in the UK who teaches courses in both London and Singapore. But he spends a whole term (semester) in one place, he doesn't fly back and forth every week.

This is at all unusual.
A good example is professors who belong to the Universty of London (which includes nearly all colleges in London except Imperial). They tend to travel quite a lot since many (most) 4th year and graduate courses are given by UL as a whole.
Moreover, many who have reached the "level" of professor are also visiting professors at other universities, sometimes this is a nearby university but quite frequently it is in another country.

So the answer is lots of travelling...

How does that work?
Is that person a tenured professor at a particular university?

He could be simply an adjunct professor at those places and he's employed simply to teach.

Does that site specifically state when the class was taught? He may have taught in several places, but maybe not all at the same time.
