How to validate email address or URL on client side?

My page is form. There are fields for email and url input. How to validate them? Since I have try the same technique, it works on the "required", but not the "email" field. For the required validation, when I click the save button, there is a message box shows under the field which is blank. But the message will only show one by one. Can they all show at the same time? How can I solve it?
Here is my code:
<apex:page standardController="Artist__c" extensions="extattachfile" showHeader="false" sidebar="false" docType="html-5.0">
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1,minimum-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1.0, user-scalable=no" />

<style type="text/css">
h1 {font-size: 150%; font-weight: bold;}
h2 {font-size: ;}
p { width:100%;
    font-size: 120%;
    text-align: justify;
    text-justify: inter-word;}
.reddot {color: red; font-size:120%;}
.textarea { height:200px; 
            width:300px;
            border-radius: 5px;}
.url {width:300px;}
.title {font-size:175%;}
.standard {width: 310px;}
@media only screen and (min-width: 900px) {
    /* For desktop: */
p { width:890px;
    font-size: 120%;
    text-align: justify;
    text-justify: inter-word;}
}
.color {
    background-color: #F7F6D2;
    -webkit-transition: all 1s ease;
    -moz-transition: all 1s ease;
    -o-transition: all 1s ease;
    transition: all 1s ease;
}
</style>
