Yes, there were. The last one before Pangaea was called Pannotia. Other supercontinents before these were named Rodinia, Columbia, Kenorland, Ur, and Vaalbara.
Earth's crust is constantly being reconfigured. Scientists use the term "supercontinent cycle" to describe the reforming and breaking up of earth's supercontinents. However, there is no set time that predicts the frequency of supercontinents forming.
