These two words have completely different meaning but they have the same pronunciation.

💡

mais - more, further mas - but, however

Unless someone is emphasizing its pronunciation and speaking very slowly:

Mas - Mais

There is no difference:

Eu gosto mais de você.

Eu quero comer sorvete, mas estou de dieta.

💡

Oh, and the word 'pero' doesn't exist in Portuguese, that's Spanish 🙋‍♂️
