R is a programming language. "git" is a DVCS (Distributed Version Control
System). They don't really interrelate much at all. Other than the fact
that you can use "git" as a version control system for your R source code
and other textual documents. Yes, you can also do binary stuff in git, like
images and executables, but git doesn't do much with them other than just
store them in the repository.

git does not "create, name, and navigate around directories/files" (at
least as I understand what that means, but I'm Linux user). It is used to
maintain copies (versions) of files within a directory and its
sub-directories in a "git repository", along any comments you might add, so
that you can restore a particular "version" of one or more files.

You might want to read up on git. I'd suggest starting here:
