This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

add_filter( 'excerpt_length', function($length) { return 400; }, 999 );
add_filter('excerpt_more', function($more) { return ''; });

another edit: this will cut words at the end, not in the middle of some word. I'm sorry if I understood the request wrong. And be free to change 400 to any amount of words you want to show.

add that to your functions.php

edit: You say you wan't it to "appear in paragraph". I'm not sure what you mean by that, can't you just put <p>...</p> around it?

And alignment? That's what your CSS is for, be more specific, please.
