I have an old Yahoo Mail account on which I still get a few emails, now and then - but I now primarily use Gmail.
Is there a way for me automatically to forward or fetch emails from that account so that they show up in Gmail?

Both of the previous answers relate to a feature that is only available through the Yahoo Mail Plus plan, which now costs money.
If you're willing to pay for Yahoo Mail Plus, which would run you $20 for one year, setting up POP or forwarding, as described in the previous answers, is the way to go.
However, I don't recommend it, as you would be paying for an account you don't really use (and for features that are free in Gmail).
Instead, you can use the
Import mail and contacts feature from Gmail. To set it up, go to
Settings --> Accounts and Import --> Import mail and contacts.
In gmail, you can configure it to retrieve email from another account via pop.
Go to settings, Accounts & Import, and add the details under the "Check Mail using Pop3". It will automatically label retrieved mail with the name of the account, or you can set up a custom label if you prefer.
In Yahoo mail, go to Options -> More options -> POP & Forwarding. Then click on Forward your Yahoo!Xtra Mail and enter your new Gmail address to forward them to. Just click Save Changes at the top and you'll be good to go! Yahoo's help page on it might also be useful
