Synonyms of "Act" and their differences

Q: act ve behave arasındaki fark nedir?
A: Behave and act practically have the same meaning. (The Oxford Dictionary's defintion of act even contains behave) I would say the difference is that act has more than one definition and can be used as a noun. Behave is commonly used when talking about children. A mother may tell their child to "Behave yourself" but they also could say "Don't act up". The other definition of act is acting as a character in a play or tv show, so for example, "The man acted as the King of England". I hope this clears things up.
