I'm new. Have a few questions. Any tips?

As the title says, I'm level 2 apparently and played my last match longer than I can remember. I Keep seeing cool ass ads so would like to start playing properly but I don't know how. Basic questions. Will I lose my rank if I'm unable to play for a few weeks at a time? Is it difficult to start playing? Is the community as toxic as csgo?
