What is the difference between a jet plane and a propeller?

A jet plane uses a jet engine's thrust for propulsion. A propeller is a set of blades somewhat like a big fan that blows air to the back of the plane for thrust instead of using a jet engine for the thrust to move the plane forward.

Can you rev a jet engine without producing thrust?

No. Propeller aircraft however can adjust their props to a neutral position, allowing for no forward or reverse thrust. Jet engine blades are fixed.
