I wish to write a code to get all submissions and their comments related. The submissions should be constrained by a search query and time period.
The problems I face is that:
a. I can’t understand how to specify the period in the above, the documentation tend to poor
b. I don’t know if the result is constrained to a limit. The above code yields:

I highly doubt there must be many more than this. If yes, how can I get them. If the requests are constrained to a time-window. Is there some workaround to sleep and then get more?
c. I don’t know if it is constraints like twitter over not accessing historcial data. Though the period argument states opposite. Still not certain.
d.It returns a generator. How can I access the full submission text and related comments’ text as well.
Sorry if it seems a bit indirect, but the dearth of examples online and lack of proper documentation has led to face these issues.
