    I have not heard from you for a long time.
    I have not heard form you since Monday.

    Use 'for' with periods of time, and use 'since' with specific points in time, like this,

    More than one day, hour, minute, month, second, year, etc
    for a week
    for a day
    for 2 months
    for 5 minutes

    One day, time
    since Monday
    since yesterday
    since 4 o'clock
    since I last saw you
    since the last time I saw you

    All the best, :D
