Re: What's the difference among these three concepts and verbs?
If I had a baguette (a French bread stick) and didn't want to use a knife, then yes, I would "break off some bread". However, I wouldn't "break off a slice". A slice of bread has either been pre-cut so you would just take the slice out the packet, or you slice it yourself using a bread knife, resulting in a slice. If you break it off by hand, then you end up with "a piece" or a "chunk" or, less commonly, "a hunk".
