They can be just a couple notes, a half a measure, a full measure, 2 measures or more, but most often they are no longer than about 2 measures and often just a few notes. There are licks to use over a certain chord being played. Intro or Outro licks. Licks to move from one chord to another chord - such as a G chord going into a D chord. A lick can be made with any series of notes that you think sound good.

My suggestion would be to learn the chords to at least 10 good solid songs by playing the chords to at least songs. You get a lot more bang from your buck when you're able to accept lessons in that sort of manner. That means you need your own songs in your own good enough style first.
