bold is just a visual tag where as strong is also an indicator of importance to web crawlers/ search engines.

bold describes what it should look like. strong describes the importance. strong is the preferred option because it simply says 'this piece of text is important' whereas bold just says 'make this piece of text look bold'

They are the same thing. <b> (bold) and <strong> (also bold) mean exactly the same thing.
