Difference between No Break and UPS

I have heard many times that people talks about UPS and No breaks as a same device, is that true or there is a difference?

UN-interrupted=No break.

There are online and offline UPS systems. But it seem that you are reading this term from the marketing material of some company.

Considering that both are the same, would be online and offline behavior the only difference ?

Also you may or may not care that some UPS give a true sine wave output whereas other give a "modified" sine wave output. True sine is more like actual AC mains waveform, "modified" is more like a square wave really, can cause noise problems with some equipment and I reckon stresses the PSUs more. True sine UPS are usually more expensive.
