I assume you're asking about Calendar 1.4. The description ("Additional Description") will be shown directly in the output. But I guess you mean the "Info Text": just uncheck the "Icon" checkbox to the left of the "Info Text" textarea.
If you want to have full control over the appearance of the eventlist, have a look at section 11 "Event-List Style" in the manual.

If the events are edited from the back-end, all semicolons will be replaced by commas, to avoid corruption of the database. But changing the delimiter might be a good idea anyway. ASCII 28-31 would be a logical choice, but I'm afraid not all editors have full support for displaying and inserting these characters. So perhaps a Tab character or even a multi-character combination might be considered.
