I tried to find a hot patch video but none came up on the first page of searches.
That is a demonstration wall standing in front of the yellow one it is built like 2 walls so it will stand with out being tipsy.
I can't remember the last time I used a saw I just keep cutting with a knife.

No he does not, that stud is inches away from the board he is patching.
He is patching between studs. I don't know what else to say.

There is a board behind his hole. There is no board behind mine.

But, I do get the idea.

Go to 1:54 on the video and see that he has room to put the board behind the drywall without dealing with the stud. That stud is not close to the drywall he is working on. Just pay attention to the procedure and ignore the stud.
