    Chapters are released per week in Jump magazines, but they are meant to be read in volumes (they're meant to be read in clumps of 7-9 chapters). Not only that, but many people like to own a hard copy of manga, which is why they are also sold in book form.

    Volumes are several chapters in one book, so to say. They just have fancy covers that the author makes.

    Shonen Jump then gets individual chapters of said manga while paying the Mangaka each time their chapter is released, if these readers have a subscription to their magazine.

    it's just cheaper and more efficient. mass producing a 20 page chapter every week isn't really a good idea and it's better to do it with a 100+ page books every once in a while. the covers are just to attract attention and have something nice on there, like how books have covers even though they don't add very little to the book.

    also it's a chance to fix errors, which is always nice.

    Because it would be pretty lame to sell them every week as a single issue. Plus its more practical.
