It depends, actually. There are many different reasons for being banned. But I'll give the three most common, and the lengths of time they last.
1. YOU ARE A JERK ONLINE - Basically, you get called for being offensive, or just plain out you're being unsportsmanlike, or taking advantage of glitches. If you're reported until your stars are all empty, you can either be forced to change your name, or if it went too quickly to that point, they will ban you for a few weeks to a few months.
2. YOU HAVE A MODDED SYSTEM - If you've chipped your system in any sort of way and somehow got nabbed playing illegal copies (or Japanese only games on a US system) and got caught (which in the Japanese only situation is fairly easy), you can get banned PERMANENTLY. Basically you've been skirting around the rules that Microsoft BLATANTLY stated when you first signed up for XBox live, which, if you didn't know, is actually a contract that they are even allowed to sue for (but they don't)... they will ban both your screen name and your mail account that your Live tag was attached to.
3. YOU ARE A CHEATER - Either by using hacked accounts to double up on gamerscore, using unavailable content before it became available, being complained for being that guy who knows how to stand in a spot you can't be shot... etc... In the end, they basically ban you for a month to get your act straight... and in the case that you were cheating to gain gamerpoints... then you lose ALL of your gamerscore (not just your cheated points) and won't be able to gain any of those achievements again. And you'll only find if you got your score reset AFTER you can log back on.
I hope these three aren't what your problem is... and that there is just a weird mistake... but note, Microsoft holds the right to deny service at any time. So whether their banning of you was warranted or not, you can't do anything to change it. That's in that contract, too.
