Yep, H30+ and OH- are formed from H20 during autoprotolysis. One of the water atoms steals an oxygen from another water atom. The reaction is called autoprotolysis because the molecules are the same, they just transfer protons.

H3O+ and OH- are also both related acid base reactions. A base will form OH- while an acid will form H3O+. Both reactions for acids and bases will start out with either a base or acid and H2O. The H3O+ and OH- is formed as a product from the H2O in both cases.
