Wood fences are broken most quickly with an axe, but will drop when broken with any tool. Nether brick fences require a pickaxe, mining it with anything else will drop nothing.

While fences appear to be a single block tall, and have a hitbox height of one block, their collision box (for entities) is 1.5 blocks tall, meaning most mobs cannot jump over them without the Jump Boost status effect. They are transparent to light and have visual gaps in the model.
A fence occupies the center space of blocks and automatically connects to any solid block that is placed next to it. Wood fences will connect to other wood fences, but will not connect to nether brick fences.
Since their hitbox is smaller than a single block, it will allow a player/mob in the block to breathe even when submerged.
Fences can be used to attach mobs with a lead.
Wooden fences can be used as a fuel in furnaces, smelting 1.5 items per block.

Naturally occurring fences in a village.
A fence`s primary use is enclosing an area. It functionally serves to keep mobs (usually animals) and players either inside or outside. This is because fences are 1.5 blocks tall to players and mobs, although they appear to be only 1 block tall, and are only that tall to other blocks. A wide area can be made monster-resistant by enclosing it in fences and lighting the inside portion heavily. This keeps any monsters from spawning within the fence and keeps most monsters which spawned outside the fence from coming in. A notable exception is spiders, which can climb over it, although this can be avoided by putting a normal block on top of a two block tall fence, as it will hit the bottom of the block and fall down when climbing. In addition, while skeletons are unable to cross a fence, they can shoot over it. Torches can also be placed on top of fences, creating a safe perimeter. Chickens can go close enough to fences to stand entirely on the block the fence is on, allowing it to fall down and escape if said block is air.
Fences can also be used as railings, especially on the edges of balconies or floating platforms. Since fences cannot be jumped over accidentally, this keeps players and mobs from falling off while still allowing them to easily see past the fence. Fences can be used as an anchor for animals if they are attached to a Lead.
Fences can be smelted as fuel in a furnace, smelting 1.5 blocks per fence; however, this is inefficient, as it costs five planks worth, and one plank also smelts 1.5 blocks.
