    Hi Jonah

    As the equivalent of "nor": In such cases it follows a verb that is preceded by no or another negation such as nunca or jamás:

    -No quiere oír ni hablar de su hijo. She doesn't want to hear nor speak about her son.

    -Nunca estudia ni hace nada. He never studies nor does anything.

    "Ni ... ni meaning "neither ... nor": A pair of nis can be used as the equivalent of "neither ... nor":

    -Ni sus creadores ni administradores son responsables. Neither its creators nor its administrators are responsible.

    -Será ni más ni menos verdadero. It will be neither more nor less true.

    As the equivalent of "neither/nor" in a series: In English, it is common to use one "nor" (or one "or" in a negative sentence) to apply to a series of three or more. In Spanish, however, ni typically precedes each item in the series:

    -No me dabas amor, ni dinero, ni joyas ni nada. You give me neither love, money, jewels nor anything.
    -Ya no habrá muerte, ni luto, ni llanto, ni dolor. There will be neither death, mourning, tears nor pain.

    To mean "not even": With this meaning, the form ni siquiera is usually used, although the siquiera is usually optional. Ni siquiera is the more emphatic form:

    Ni (siquiera) lo imaginábamos. We didn't even imagine it.
    Ni (siquiera) la supermodelo es inmune a los estragos del tiempo. Not even the supermodel is immune to the ravages of time.

    Las dos están incorrectas.

    1. Nunca he escuchado eso antes.

    Luego de la coma (,) no entiendo el sentido de la oración.

    2. No quiero hacerlo jamás, ni te obligaré a que lo hagas.

    "En ningún momento" es sinónimo de "jamás", o sea que repetiste lo mismo.
