How are hydrogen bonds different from covalent bonds?

Hydrogen bonds are weaker than covalent bonds and form between partially charged atoms or molecules.

The atoms in hydrogen bonds have valence electrons; the atoms in covalent bonds have valence spaces.

The compounds that result from hydrogen bonds contain carbon; those that result from covalent bonds do not.

Covalent bonds are organic; hydrogen bonds are inorganic.

How many bonds does Sulfur forms to ahieve stability?

In terms of bonding, I see sulfur sometimes form 4 single bonds with surrounding atoms, and sometimes form 6 single bonds. How do you know which one to follow when you are given the formula for a molecule?

When does sulfur form 6 single bonds in a molecule?

Thx
Does a lone pair of electrons count as a single bond for sulfur?
