When do you use ,or 。 in Chinese?

I find that some Chinese sentences seem to run on forever with commas, and that a paragraph can sometimes just be one long sentence. Is there some sort of rule to when to use either one?

For learning: Chinese (Mandarin)
Base language: English

    逗号表示一句话还没有讲完。
    如:
    虽然中文很难学,但是我一定能学好。
    昨天下午做头发的时候,突然下雨了。
    如果没有逗号后面的内容,句子就不完整。

    句号表示一句话讲完了。
    也就是意思表达清楚了。

    That‘s all.

    one sentence -- one 。
    just like in western languages
