Unless somebody that is an expert disagrees, I would say this seems perfectly normal. When the engine is running, it is running off the alternator power (the battery is then being charged by the alternator), so the power supply is the alternator. And an increase from 12.5V to 14V seems perfectly normal to me. I haven't measured it in our Kia, but that's what i get in my Saab (12V on just battery...close to 14V when running).

Agree with Gidner: you should see (B+) voltage, so if the alternator is engaged, you would see 14.3 volt output at the Ignition coil (B+) hot lead, and at MAF connector pin (2) B+ lead..

At the MAF connector, you should measure (4.8 - 5.2) volt at MAF connector pin (4) against ground: that's the (+5 volt) reference voltage supplied from the ECM,

Above is from the kiatechinfo website (see my sig.), you can sign up using Internet Explorer web browser (see reqs. main page), where you can access the Service Info for your vehicle / the MAF diagnostic procedure online:
