Azure DEVOPS GIT Master and Origin/Master

Last Modified: 2019-12-01

Can anybody explain to me the difference between the Master and Origin/Master?

From what I understand the Master is the a local branch but if you do a pull request and all there is that not going into the Master?

Why is it necessary to approve the pull request and all on the Azure DevOps site using a browser? Why are not all the aspect contained and functional is Visual Studio 2019? Or is it?

Everything I have read or seen shows a browser for with Azure DEV ops and nothing explains the difference between the Master and Origin/Master. Which is use when? When I create a feature branch which Master do I create that off of?

Any info on this to help with clarity would be greatly appreciated.
