Multi-line strings are surrounded by triple quotes.

Strings are not comments, but they get ignored when they are not used.
In certain places they create docstrings which are used to explain what a module/class/function does

Syntax is patterns that the parser (part of the interpreter/compiler) knows what to do with. If you write something that doesn't match those patterns, then a syntax error gets raised while trying to read your code.
