Depending on the type of surgery (mine is a plate and screws) 8 weeks until you can effectively 'do things' again. I start physical therapy 8 weeks after surgery, but exercising and all depends mainly on the condition of your incision and how it is healing. Sweating with an incision that is less than 2 weeks old increases the risk of infection, which will slow the healing of your bone and incision. The best advice: listen to your doctor.

When is surgery necessary for a fractured clavicle bone?

not necessarily, it really depends on the fracture. you have to get an xray and if the broken parts of the clavicle are to far apart they wont heal on their own (nonunion) and surgery may be required. surgery may entail a plate and screws or a pin/rod of some sort. I suggest if you get surgery to get the rod. If you get the plate and screws you will have more healing to do after the surgery to remove it seeing as there will be holes in the bone...its like having two healing processes.
