Ya context is needed here but If you want to say you were informed of something you can use words like: mabalitaan and daw.

Like PinoyTaj said, it's context dependent but you can use words like mabalitaan and daw.
Example:
I heard from my mother that you got a new job. "Nabalitaan (heard) ko (me) kay (from) nanay (mother) na (that) nakakuha (got/obtain) ka (you) ng (a) bagong (new) trabaho (job)."
 
I heard you got a new job. "May (there is) bago (new) ka (you) daw (term to denote that you heard this information from someone) na (a) trabaho (job).
 
Note that the translations in brackets are rough translations and some can mean different things dependent on the sentence.
 
Hope that helps!

I was looking for a sentence like "it's been along time since I heard from you".

@Kersheys in this case: "matagal na akong hindi nakarinig sa iyo" or "matagal na akong walang nabalitaan sa iyo"
 
When it comes to translating to Tagalog word for word (to verb) translations won't work well. Context is highly needed for better translations
