Sveiki

I'm trying to understand the differences between "daryti" and "veikti" but haven't found any clear information so far...
Maybe someone here could explain it to me ?

These two verbs can be translated by using "to do" but i don't think they are 100% synonyms.
Some examples where one verb can be used but not the other one would be very welcomed.

Nobody can explain ?
I tried to ask to some native speakers but it seems this wasn't fully clear for them as well

The main difference is that daryti is a completely transitive verb, while veikti is usually intransitive. That means daryti always requires a direct object: daryti maistą (make food), daryti pratimą (do an exercise). Veikti: bankas veikia darbo dienomis - the bank works on workdays (only a circumstance is specified to the action).

veikti is often used when asking what somebody is up to: ką veiki? (what are you doing? - what's up?). This can be said with daryti: ką darai? Here veikti has a direct object - ką, but this is the only direct object that is common for veikti that I can think of.
