Mac console/terminal usage

I'm quite new in Mac usage. And i have some problems that make me mad. I need to know some useful shortcuts.

How to:

1) For example i edit some text file in terminal, how can i exit from editing mode?

2) For example i used command get git log, and i got huge list of commits and when i press ENTER its gave me new line of text list. How can I exit from tis list and start from new command line?

1. Are you editing using Pico? Hit control-x to exit.

2. Usually control-c will interrupt a process like this.
