    It depends whether the liquid is "polar" or non-polar.

    Polar molecules, like water, although not "attached", are strongly attracted to each other, and become "attached" as the liquid cools. Ice, for example, shows the strength of the attraction between molecules.

    Non-polar molecules, like oil, are not attracted to each other, but will "prefer" the company of other non-polar molecules if water (or other polar) molecules are also present.

    No, not connected like train cars, but they ARE attracted to each other, and they roll around each other, constantly in contact.
