A student studies knowledge at school.

A teacher teaches his students knowledge.

In terms of knowledge, are the aboved sentences naturally written? If not, what collocation will a native use concerning knowledge?

Thanks!

No.
These sentences are so tautologous that they are hardly worth writing.
Students learn at school. - This is okay, but obvious.

Of course teachers teach. They teach students. That's understood. It is not worth saying.

Teachers pass their knowledge on to students. -- This is perhaps more appropriate.

People have knowledge. They get that knowledge through study or by simply picking up information as they go through life.

Teachers teach a specific subject.
Students study a specific subject.
The result is that both the teacher and the students have knowledge of that subject.
