It's as simple as 
$ git checkout otherbranch
and to get back on master
$ git checkout master is a very
nice introducation, and
should be an interesting read if you have past CVS experience.

Anyway, while you can learn git from a relatively small subset of
commands, which I'm sure you'll find out after reading the above guides,
I'll try my best to answer any questions that may pop up. :)

You can do a clone without full history, but a shallow clone, as it's
called, isn't equally functional, so I'd never bother.
A full traverso clone takes 7MB, and gives you complete history, so with
todays hardware I don't really see issues with that.
