If I want to use a long quote but only need two points in it, can I put"…" between the two points in order to make it shorter?

You can definitely use ellipses to break quotes.

Yes, absolutely! In general, you want to quote the text in as few words as possible in order to get to the part of the text you’re analyzing.
