Changes in amounts and bake time for challah?

I want to make this recipe
http://www.saveur.com/article...

I have made it as is just fine, but I want to substitute honey for the sugar and instead of knots make it more of a braided or rounded loaf. My questions are these:

1. What amount of honey should I use in place of the sugar?
2. How does this effect any amount of other items used (water in part 1)?
3. Does the baking time or temp change (either due to sugar replacement or different shape of bread)?
4. Will more flour be needed?

Thank you for your informed replies :-)

You'll need a 1/4 cup of honey and shouldn't need to adjust anything else. I make challah a lot, and the recipe in general seems a bit short on flour, but maybe it works.

Oh, sorry, missed the loaf part, yes, you'll need to bake it for around 25-35 minutes, depending on your oven.
