I'm on branch-X and have added a couple more commits on top of it. I want to see all the differences between MASTER and the branch that I am on in terms of commits. I could just do a

git checkout master

git log

and then a

git checkout branch-X

git log

and visually diff these, but I'm hoping for an easier, less error-prone method.

You can get a very nice, visual output of how your branches differ with this 

$ git log --graph --pretty=format:'%Cred%h%Creset -%C(yellow)%d%Creset yule %Cgreen(%cr)%Creset' --abbrev-commit --date=relative master..branch-X
