From my knowledge, the only difference is exactly what it sounds like. The medication in the generic is usually exactly the same as the brand name. Brand names also are usually much more expensive. Did you have any certain medications you are wondering about?
Brand names are specific names given to the generic medicines by the manufacturers. Brands could be patent protected, once they are protected by patent laws they cannot be manufactured as generics until the patent regime expires.
The is no difference between the two.
