Both the Congressional Record and the Federal Register seem to be daily publications of US government - how are they different?

Would i be right in assuming that the Congressional Record is official, transcripts, whereas the Federal Register is unofficial commentary?

No, they have different things. The Congressional Record, as its name suggests, is a record of congressional matters. It has things like transcripts of floor speeches and committee proceedings. The Federal Register is for the executive branch, and has things like proposed agency rules and regulations.
