In application options there is the point alignment option which infers alignment between endpoints of newly created geometry and points of existing geometry.

Is there a shortcut that disbles it temporarilly while sketching?

Is there a list of all the shortcuts?

Yes, you can press "Ctrl" to avoid constraint inferences while you sketching. Release "Ctrl" to continue having inferences.
