0.  Try "git help gitrevisions" and read all of it.  That's the
authoritative documentation for the ".." syntax.

1.  If HEAD is master (e.g., previous "git checkout" was "git checkout
master") then you can do this.  Notice the leading ".." before the

  git log --oneline ..branch-name

2.  Might be easier to just remember to type "master" though:

  git log --oneline master..branch-name

3.  Also, maybe your master is ahead or behind origin/master?   Maybe
this will be more what you're looking for?

  git log --oneline origin/master..branch-name

4.  There's also an alternative "^" syntax (literally "filter out all
commits that lead to ^THIS_ONE").  A..B is a shorthand for ^A B,
afterall, and the order doesn't matter (^A B is the same as B ^A).
And so you might like this:

  git log --oneline branch-name ^master

5.  And now that I think of it, you can use that syntax to combine #2
and #3 above!  :-)

  git log --oneline branch-name ^master ^origin/master
