git fetch only downloads the data that have changed, for the first time run it will download all and create the local copy of the branches with same name as remote.
As the changes between local and remote branches are synched real-time , they have to be kept in sync with git fetch.
as compared to git fetch git pull origin master command will pull the remote master and merge into your local master, it may cause code merge issues and conflicts.
