california labor law? for mall retail job?

I just got my first "REAL" job at a mall. retail, and the boss is making m work 8 hour shifts but WITH NO BREAKS in between and when I take lunch I HAVE to clock out. is this legal? OR CAN i just request to take my 20 minute paid break as a lunch? How long are breaks anyway? I googled it and it said 10 minutes but that was 6 year old info, I just need confirmation, on any and al current labor laws THAT IS CALIFORNIA RELATED. ALSO... IS 40 hours+ a week (5 or 7 days??) considered OT? so I can work 11 hour days, 3 days a week and that is NOT CONSIDERED OT??
