In brief: Who knows

If you have no pain or swelling from your cracked teeth, most likely your headaches are not caused by them either. I am not sure what's causing your headaches based on the amount of info provided in your question, but i strongly suggest you have your cracked teeth fixed before they do become infected and indeed cause headaches and more so.

In brief: Yes- are related

Cracked teeth can come from clenching or from dental work wearing out.
Anxiety often causes more teeth clenching which is very hard on your teeth and jaw joints. If your bite changes slightly from the cracks in your teeth-this can produce substantial headaches. See a TMJ dentist for your headaches and to help get the right type of mouthguard to help lessen your clenching. Fix your cracked teeth.

In brief: Possible

Possible. Your cracked teeth maybe from clenching/grinding.
Many times patients are unaware. If so, the bruxism can cause headaches.
