Yes, there is a difference between the two. In normal use, the difference is most obvious when sending text files between different operating systems, as between Windows and the Mac. This is far less of a problem than it was, but can still sometimes crop up. For a description of the difference which is quite clear, see

Subject: [nvda] question about carriage returns vs line feeds in NVDA
Hi, I noticed that, depending on the text editor in use at the time, NVDA will sometimes say either "carriage return" or "Line feed" to indicate new lines. Since they seem to serve similar purposes, I wonder if there is actually a difference between the two?
