During the connexion between a "node" and a "Puppet Master", does Facter (on the node) send all Facts or just Facts which are concerned by Puppet manifests applying on the node ?

Just to add a clarity about facts ->

When a node makes a request to a puppetmaster _> The puppetmaster will provide to the node its certificate and at that time a collection of facts from the node are sent to the puppetmaster as part of the compilation for the catalog. Once the puppetmaster receives all of the facts and its own certificate information it is evaluated, You are prompted or auto-signing is invoked to sign the certificate, Once the certificate is signed and SSL session is established. Additional, information collective by the puppetmaster. A catalog is compiled, compared and deployed to the node from the puppetmaster to the node which made the request.

I hope this helps...

It will send all of the facts to the master.

Which manifests will be applied to the node ultimately depends on the values of facts, so the master can't determine which facts are relevant before it actually needs them. It's just simpler to send them all at the start.
