With ionic bonds, the distance and charge affect the strength of the bond. For example, if there are more electrons being transferred then the bond would be stronger. With covalent bonds, the length of the bond and electronegativity affect the strength of the bond. Moreover, triple bonds > double bonds > single bonds, therefore higher amounts of bonds allows for a lower bond length.
For covalent, the difference in electro negativity will determine if the bond is either polar or non polar. And yes the increasing number of bonds decreases the bond length. Higher bond order (number of bonds) indicated more attraction between electrons and the atoms will be held closer together
