Holes/Cracks in Exterior Wall

I've noticed some small holes in my exterior walls at ground level next to my driveway. The pictures show the one right in the corner which is a small hole about the depth of my pinky finger and the other set of cracks/holes a bit further down the driveway are quite a bit larger, Probing with my hand I can fit half my fist into the largest hole, I'm not sure if they communicate with the interior but there are no obvious signs of damage in my basement.

Do I need to be concerned about my foundation and could I just get some concrete mix and patch it up?

Looks like spalling of the concrete from water getting into the joints and freezing. Water needs to be directed away from the house and the joints need to be patched/sealed/caulked to eliminate space for water to collect.
