Just to chime in, there is not much of a difference. Main point is that when you work on local branch (so you download, branch and work) it's easier to update from master in case you work a longer time and want to get changes which appeared after you created the branch. You can also push that branch and have everyone able to commit things.
That'd be useful when working on BS 2.0 files, for example - because whole org has access to that branch and everyone can commit to it parallel to master.
Forking is a bit more hassle in terms of git and GitHub, because you clone entire repo not only locally, but also online. You end up with your own personal copy.
Both enable pull requests. But for typical workflow, when you already are member and have access, branching is the way to go. Forking is most popular on GitHub 'cause you don't have to get any access/membership to start working and also quite often it's just a single or a couple pull requests for a lifetime (from single person).
I hope I cleared it up a bit, but seeing how much I've written, I'm not sure if it's not even more clogged now xD
