chemical bond is the connection of different elements through the sharing, transferring or pooling of electrons.  

Intramolecular forces influence the chemical properties of compounds and are the forces binding the molecules together. These are the types of forces that we refer to as bonds. The different types are shown below.

An ionic bond involves the transferring of an electron from one element to another element. Usually, found between a metal and non-metal.

covalent bond involves the sharing of electron(s) between elements. Usually found between non-metals. 

metallic "bond" isn't really a bond. Think of electrons as being loosely connected or "pooling"  on the surface of many metals. Found on metals. 

Intermolecular forces influence the physical properties of compounds and are the forces that attract one molecule to another.
