    He thanks Jane that she told him about the website

    Is the sentence (in the title) correct??

    Can i write "that she told"

    after "thanks" or "thanks Jane"?

    'He thanked Jane for telling him about the website.'

    Not a teacher.

    Yes.

    Use only a single question mark.

    It's not a natural sentence, while the one Matthew suggested is.
