    Behavior is an action, manner is the way in which an action is done.

    "His behavior in class is unacceptable, he is disruptive and does not seem to care about the rest of the students."

    "His manner of speaking is quite forceful. He is able to portray his ideas very well with his command of the English language."

    Why is he behaving this way?
    I don't know.
    He just peed in the juice jar.
    He has no manners.

    Your response is a good example with a kind of humor. I will never forget.
