I had bite adjustment and could smell and taste burning when dentist was grinding teeth down, still taste burn in mouth, is this normal side effect?

In brief: No

The taste and smell should go away with rinsing your mouth.
If it continues after rinsing with a mouth rinse i would see your dentist again.

In brief: No

Your dentist may have not used enough cooling irrigation during the grinding.
You need to discuss this with your dentist.
