The price of ETH is falling more because it was also more dynamic during the uptrend. The valuation of ETH amounted to 130% while BTC appreciated only by 43%. So if we compare the last dip and the rise, we can see that the price of ETH is still performing better, despite the higher current correction.

Why did ETH grow so fast?

The price of ETH increased mainly due to the announcements of exactly when the long-awaited The Merge, the network upgrade, will happen. In more than 3 weeks, the network will be upgraded to Proof of stake, like you they informed.
