A commit is Git terminology for when you are ready to send changes back to GitHub. You can commit as frequently as you wish.

A pull request is Git terminology for triggering a code review so that changes in a branch can be merged with your master branch. Essentially it is a safety mechanism to prevent you from overwriting your definitive code before it's ready. For professional programmers, it is a means for a project manager to ensure the code is up-to-standard and does not conflict with any other work being done.
