oops when i did the queston i was kinda in a rush so i didn't write it correctly i ment 16 weeks not 6 thanks
With a puppy that young, I wouldnt bath him anymore than every two weeks. They need the oils on their skin and coat.
My yorkie who is now almost 3 has a bath about every 10 days. More in the summer when he's outside digging in the dirt and fewer in the winter when he's inside more.
They make scented puppy wipes (VERY similar to baby wipes) for a quick rub down or to wash their paws.
As for biting, all puppies bite and want to chew when they are teething. When he starts to nip at people, make a high pitched yelp and give the pup a new direction, such as a bone to bite on or a toy to play with. I think I lucked out with my little guy. He was never really a biter. He didnt want to chew on cords or shoes. There was a wooden box that he couldnt stay aways from while he was teething. But I would give him a stern "no" and redirect him.
