Here's how a thread happens. Someone sends a message. Others reply to that message, or to other replies. All of those are in one thread. If someone replies, but changes the subject, then that becomes the start of a new thread. If someone sends a completely new email (compose instead of reply) that happens to have the exact same subject as another thread, it's still considered a new thread. The system figures this out by mainly by reference information encoded in the email headers by everyone's email programs. There is no time component.
If someone mutes a thread, they're only muting that particular thread, not every message with a particular subject.
Hope this helps.
