How Does Rsync Behave ?

I am going thru the documentation and I noticed that there is some talk
returning error codes. Some Q:s
* If rsync encounters a network error, does it do retries ?
Can you control the # of retries ?
* Do the rsync client & server stop running upon encountering an error ?
Can you tell rsync to stop upon the first error encountered ?
* If the remote rsync encounters an error that is local, say a disk I/O
does this error get eventually sent back to the client ? If so, can you
encapsulate rsync inside of a shell script to react different ways
upon the returned result code from the remote copy of rsync ?
