Do I get a certificate when I complete an online course?
Not necessarily. This differs per platform and whether you are willing to pay or not. Udacity for example does not provide certificates for their free courses, though their nanodegree programs give one of the most prestiges online degrees currently available. EdX and Coursera both provide certificates of completion as well but only if you pay for them.
