    Intra-sentence would refer to connections inside a sentence.
    Inter-sentence would refer to connection between sentences.

    As to important factors, I would need to know more about what is bothering you.

    Re: Inter and Intra sentence connection

    I would like to know how they work in sentences. Are they aspects of coordination or subordination?

    Assuming that you are talking about "conjunctions" here, both subordinating and coordinating conjunctions can be used inside a sentence. Two sentences can also be connected by coordinating conjunctions. In addition, two sentences can be connected with "conjunctive adverbs".

    More about conjunctions here:
