Regulus Black wasn't killed on Voldemort's orders... he was killed by Inferi when trying to replace Slytherin's locket with a fake.

And also I'm sure Tom Riddle creates one horcrux (the diary) before he asks Slughorn about them. He only asked Slughorn because he wanted to know what would happen if he created more than one.
