I had root canal treatment, is it normal that the teeth next to the treated tooth feel tender to biting?

Yes this can. Be noted. One possible reson is that the bite load on the treated tooth was changed or even removed as a part of the root canal procedure. This places a little more load/chewing stress on the adjacent teeth. Also, inflammation from the "sick" tooth can have an influence on the neighbors. Explain this issue w your treating dentist.
Sometimes. It is normal for the treated tooth to hurt or feel tender. The discomfort may be referred to other teeth, especially in the lower arch. Also, if the teeth are in the upper arch, a sinus infection may cause the teeth to hurt.
Quite possible... There may be some inflammation following treatment. Your dentist performing the procedure may be able to provide you with a mild analgesic to alleviate this inflammation. It may provide you with the relief you are looking for.
Not unusual. After any type of dental work it is not unusual to have referred pain to adjacent areas for a short period of time. This is due to the inflammation in the area.

I had my root canal treatment on front tooth last april 7, 2015 but not yet put crown. To my surprise, it feels sensitivity to cold now and cant use to bite because it pains. Is it normal? What should I do?

No. It is not expected to have cold sensitivity because cold sensitivity is a sign that the tooth is still alive, and after a root canal a tooth should not have any nerve left and thus will be considered dead. It is possible that the cold sensitivity you are feeling is from one of the teeth next to it or that the root canal was not finished, I recommend going back to your dentist to check it out.

Root canal.
