    start work and start working / work

    Is there any difference between "start work" and "start working / to work"?

    I understand that "work" in the first phrase is a noun whereas in the second one it's a verb. However, are there any fine moments else? Or I'm overthinking right now
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.
