If your passport has recently expired, all you have to do is bring the expired passport with the visa and present it with the new one. As long as all the information is the same in both passports, they will allow it. In other words, if you get married and your name changes, this won't work for you.
After a while, though, you'll have to transfer the visa from your old passport to the new one. This is done either through a visa agency (such as Passport Visas Express) or by sending your passport in person to Chinese Consulate.
