Sprain: That depends on what is sprained and the severity of injury. Minor sprain can be a few weeks. More severe injury can be months -- or never as may need surgery to fix (labrum, etc).

See details: How long do you mean by so long? If the shoulder problem persists it needs to be evaluated for the presence of more significant issues such as tears.

Depends: It depends on the type and severity as well as your level of activity. Generally, uncomplicated sprains usually take 6-12 weeks to heal.
