S does not follow the octet rule. It will hold more than 8 electrons.

Sulfur having valence electrons in the 3rd energy level, will also have access to the 3d sublevel, thus allowing for more than 8 electrons.

Elements in the first 2 periods of the Periodic Table do not have access to the d sublevel and must adhere to the octet (or duet H and He) rule.

From- Sulfuric acid was discovered by medieval European alchemists. They called it "oil of vitriol". Found in Lead acid batteries (car batteries). Pure sulfuric acid is not encountered naturally on Earth, due to its great affinity for water. Concentrated sulfuric acid is about 98% H2SO4.
