Besides spawning randomly, zombies will also spawn from monster spawners, making monster spawners a convenient way to get their drops.
If a zombie gets close enough to the player, it will start following them in order to attack them. This isn't too much of a problem since zombies walk fairly slow and they have 20 health points (10 hearts). They are able to jump 2 blocks high, like the player.
When a zombie comes in contact with light from the sun, it catches fire and take damage. It is a good idea to wait until morning to hunt for zombies because they will already be taking damage from the sun.
