Covalent bonds are intramolecular bonds, which would be the bonds between the oxygen and hydrogen in H2O. Due to the electronegativity difference between hydrogen and oxygen, the electron distribution becomes uneven which allows for intermolecular bonds known as hydrogen bonding.
Covalent bonds are for intramolecular bonds while hydrogen bonds are for intermolecular bonds. in simpler terms, a covalent bond is what actually glues the H2 and O atoms to make a molecule while the hydrogen bond glues the H2O molecule with other H2O molecules to make water.
