Bond Strength

Does hybridization affect bond strength? If so, how?

As the orbitals in the bond have more s character, the bond length generally decreases so the strength increases.

Yes, for example the sigma bond length between a carbon atom and another atom is shorter for a carbon atom with a hybridization of sp2 than for a carbon atom with a hybridization of sp3.
