We are buying a home - what is the etiquette/law of forming a relationship with a real estate agent?

We've met with one agent, but it didn't go beyond her showing us listings on a computer, and we'll be meeting with one or two more to decide who we want to work with. How far can we go with one agent before we have to tell the other agents that we are not interested in working with them? Maybe the same question: when should we expect to sign a contract? Also, Am I right in my understanding that we must commit to a single agent - what if we want to work with two agents in totally separate areas?
We are looking in Washington, DC and Maryland, if that matters.
