i have just learned about llevar + gerund, which also used to say how long has someone done something. is this structure the same as the one in this lesson where we use present tense + desde hace?

If they are not equal, what is the difference then?
Appreciate any answers or replies! muchas gracias
Yes, they are two very different structures used for the same purpose.
They are both idiomatic and equally used.
The llevar + gerund one may convey a bit more the progression of the action, but there isn't a massive difference between them.
