Hi ram27,
One of the major different is Master page inherits all child pages in contentplace holder control
and usercontrol can be placed in master page. In nutshell, user control can be considered as subset of Master page control. Meanwhile, you also notice that user control can't hold any page inside.

If you're comparing both in design mode, you'll notice master page's design is rendered clearly in the entire page's design mode and user control's design only be rendered after you run the page at run-time version.
I'm sure there are more differences for both controls that used, you can check each of its original functionality and compare it respectively.

However, if you're looking for deeper explanations for both control, give these a stab:

I like to think of a Master Page as a master template, while User Controls are usually web functionality "components" that you plug into a page.
