Are collaboration and teamwork the same thing?

Yes, both are about working together to achieve something an individual could not achieve on his/her own, generally something that has never been done identically before.

Collaboration and teamwork are collective creative activities. They becomes possible when the parties allow each other to improvise and they each respect and respond to the other's contributions. Essentially they continually learn from each other and break new ground as they find the way to achieve their objective.

This is/was equally true for the Indianapolis Colts, John Lennon and Paul McCartney, Watson and Crick, and the cast of The Departed.
