    gone vs been

    Please help me I need your assistance becuase I have a confusion to construe a sentence.

    When I visisted to my friend who lived in Malasia. I asked a question to him.

    How long have you been here?

    He said . I have been living here for a long time.

    Please tell me whether my question is correct or not. Because he is living there not leave the destination.
    gone = he was there not come
    been = he was there not now come.
