To compare the remote branch you just need to update the remote branch using

git fetch

Then you can differentiate using

git diff <masterbranch_path> <remotebranch_path>

You can use git branch -a to list all branches then choose the branch name from the list from the remote branch name.


git diff master origin/master (where "master" is a local master branch and "origin/master" is a remote namely origin and master branch.)
