'Learn' is more usually followed by the infinitive, but context might dictate otherwise.

"Learn driving, cooking, swimming and walking" or "learn how to drive, cook, swim and walk". Please tell me which of these two is correct.

See my corrections above. You need to make the sentences/phrases you are asking us about stand out from the rest of what you write.

Learn driving, learn swimming or any other bare infinitive is uncommon in Ame. We say learn to drive, learn to swim etc. And "learn how to" is almost as common as "learn to" in my dialect.
