Not only every atom, but also lone pairs. Both a bound atom and a lone pair are each referred to as an electron density region. So it is like a rule of thumb that every region of electron density should be as far from the other in determining the molecular shape, which takes up 3-dimensional space.

Yes, additionally, I believe that the force that a lone pair exerts on bonds would be greater than the force a bond has on another bond.
