The two drains are connected, but below the disposal. Likely if it's not draining down, you still have a clog, and the person the "cleared" the drain didn't.

Sometimes the disposal rotor is jammed by a piece of chicken bone for example. You can use the supplied hex key to stick into a hole at the bottom and jiggle the rotor free.

Check on the bottom of the unit, the shaft usually goes all the way through and on the bottom has a socket you can put an allen wrench in to twist it. IF that is not the case, you can use a wooden broom handle through the opening in the sink as a lever to break loose any jams

The one thing they don't tell you in the instruction guide is how to hold the garbage disposal in place while attempting to connect it to the drain collar. After trying to lift, balance, and align the disposal to the point my arm was getting warn out it finally occurred to me that there was definitely an easier way. I went down to my car and got my scissors jack, put the disposal on the jack, and slowly eased it into place until it mated with the drain collar. Easy as pie from there on.
