Homeschooling at age 6 is absolutely marvelous. It's a hard job and harder as the children get older, but those first few years K-3rd grade in the US (ages 5-9) are the easiest and most fun. I really believe anyone with even a slight interest at this age should give it a try.
Hours aren't the most important thing for a 6 year old. Learning to sit for at least an hour a day can have good value, but it's totally fine to follow your child's lead. A child who is already on our above grade level for the critical subjects (math, reading, writing) can spend more time on interests than a child who struggles a bit more and needs more time to work on foundations.
I do think a math curriculum is essential, but everything else is easy to do organically at this age, especially if your child is already reading and writing a bit.
For how the kids act during homeschooling... They are just themselves. Every kid is different.
