Which of the following are correct?
I don't know when we should use 'sometimes', when 'some of the time(s)' and when 'sometime'?
Could you please introduce some reliable source to study more about them?

Sentences 1 and 4 are correct.

I know you're studying variations with "some" and "time", but I can't help pointing out that the single word intermittently can replace the last seven words of sentence 1.
