    The symbiote was bonded to Spider-Man, so along with memory he also absorbed the biology of Peter's powers and can give them to it's host, formerly Brock, now Gargan. Carnage possessed similar powers from his symbiote the same way but used tendrils instead of webbing.

    In the comics its a little easier to grasp because Peter did not produce his own webbing (at the time). He also commented that he no longer needed web shooters. So it was directly revealed that the suit was producing the webbing.

    In addition, the costume had other abilities like mimicking ordinary clothing.
    Plus, it was easier to infer that the symbiote inheritted Peter's powers because as Venom, Brock is able to cancel Peter's spider sense.

    So, in the comics, it is a little easier to grasp the hows and whys of the power transfer even if some of it is left to the readers' imagination.

    The movie is not so easy to explain. Peter has organic webshooters so he was probably still using his own webbing while wearing the black costume. Also, the suit just seemed to be able become a black version of his costume and nothing else. When he was done with it, he put it in a trunk! It would have been nice to see it snake off him like it did in the comics, and Mary Jane could have had Felicia's line of "Look at the way it moves. What could be right with it?"

    Finally, there was no explanation of Venom being so dangerous to Peter specifically because it cancelled his spider sense. Indeed, Spider-man 3 appears to completely forget about the spider sense power except (maybe) when Harry throws the pumpkin bomb that Peter dodged and returned.

    In the comics Spider-Man once beat Venom because he realized the symbiote used some of it's own mass to create the webbing it made for Brock, so he made Brock expend so much that the symbiote became too weak to fight. This was probably how it created webbing for Brock in the movie, as well. Again, not very well explained.
