"Between" shows connection with two persons or things and may refer to space or time. Example: There was an alley between the buildings.
"Among" and "amongst" show connection with more than two persons or things. Sometimes people use "between" when they want to show a connection with more than two things, but this is not correct. Example: They stood among the trees.
