Expert Answer:

The basic differentiation can be drawn from their definitions,
The definition of magnetic field comes from the expression for force experienced by moving chared particle in the magnetic field, B.
F = q(v x B).
while magnetic flux is defined as the scalar product of magnetic field and vector area.
Φ = B.A,
Also while magnetic field is a vector, magnetic flux is a scalar. They are also different on their physical dimensions and units.
