how do we differentiate between a "line" and a "sentence"?
A sentence is a grammatical construct: subject, verb, object, etc., period. It contains a complete idea or statement and can be of varying lengths. A line is a typographical construct: one printed line on a page regardless of whether it is a complete sentence, several sentences, etc. Overall, if you were told to "Look at the fifth line," you could easily find it without doing any reading or looking for punctuation; you can see the printed lines on the page. If you were told to "Look at the fifth sentence," you would have to look at the punctuation to see where the sentences start and stop.
