So I want to be more professional sending clients photos. Right now I'm using google drive from my school email just because there is unlimited drive space. But I wanted to know which sharing sites are the best or the ones that you guys use! Thank you!

I use drop box which all of my clients have been happy with and it fully integrates with my Mac operating system making syncing very quick (I can export straight from Lightroom into Dropbox).

Well to be honest if you have installed the Dropbox program on your computer it will pretty much interface automatically with any program, allowing saved documents to be automatically uploaded to the web. All you need to do is have the program save the image to your Dropbox folder, or one of it's subfolders. I only do a small amount of commercial work for a couple of regular clients, and what I like about Dropbox is the way that I can directly share a Dropbox folder with the client. I can then set LR to export to that folder on my machine, or use any other program and save to that folder on my local machine, and a few moments later the file appears in the same Dropbox folder on the client's machine. It has the added advantage that this is a two way process, so that the client can also send stuff to me in the same way. As well as photography services I also do contract engineering design work for one of my clients, so using Dropbox is great, as all of my design documents are also saved via Dropbox, and so are always up to date and available on both my machines, when I am working from my home office, as well as all of the clients computers when I am working onsite at the clients place, and I don't need to lug about a laptop and set it up at the different locations, one less thing to have to worry about.

When using Dropbox, is there a memory size limit?

There are different levels of account, and they come with varying storage limits, I only have a free account, so only get IIRC a couple of GB of data, although I did have 20GB free for a couple of years after signing up for my last mobile contract. Apart from the total storage limit I don't think there are any actual limits to the sizes of files that can be uploaded, or at least I haven't found one.
