Rule of thumb is 60,000 but no more than 100,000 hope this helps. Feedback is much appreciated.

I did some googling. It says. For newer hondas. Its 105K miles.N so I am confused.(The car is not used in extreme conditions)

and how about for cars with timing chain? And for those which are like 98-00 model but less mileage approx 50-70K miles?

Timing chains don't need to be replaced. Timing belts were implemented to make it cheaper and keep costs down, chains are expensive.
