what is the difference between a fractured bone and a broken bone?

None

Bone
They are different terms for the same thing. Fracture can vary in severity and problems. Almost always there is trauma to the soft tissues surrounding the bone. When it is open (exposed to the outside environment) it is much more serious since infection risk is higher. The higher the energy that caused the fracture, the more problems that attend the fracture.

What is the difference between a bone break and a bone fracture?

Symantecs

Bone
A fracture or break is the same thing. There are degrees of fractures or breaks. One can have a small crack in the bone and not be through and through or one can have total separation of the bone fragments. They really are one and the same.
