Question about English (US)

What is the difference between fall and autumn?
Feel free to just provide example sentences.

My dictionaries say "autumn" is especially British English and "fall" American English. Do you think Americans don't normally use the word autumn when they refer to fall? For example, would they be most likely to say, "fall leaves" instead of "autumn leaves"? I'm currently trying to learn American English, and I want to sound natural when I speak American English. I don't want to mix British English and American English when I speak American English. Do you think it's okay if I use "autumn" when I speak American English? I know both words mean the season between summer and winter. Thank you for your help!
