Are the WebDAV extensions related to REST principles? What I mean by that is, REST is an abstraction of the WWW architecture and the WebDAV is just an extension to the HTTP. So can we say that when I speak in terms of REST API's, I can restrict myself to HTTP and not HTTP extensions like WebDAV?

That depends on what you're speaking of when "I speak in terms of REST API's" - what REST APIs are those? WebDAV looks like it's built according to REST principles. You could perceive it as a REST API for file (or resource) operations like versioning.
