    Only one of the three commas you used is needed. Do you know which one?

    All else is fine.

    No.

    The comma in #1 is correct. The others are not.

    Thank you! I just caught that when I was rewriting that sentence.

    I am still confused about the comma here. I thought you use a comma before for, and, or, so, but, nor, and yet?

    ... but not before "so that" -- when the conjunction is one of the FANBOYS, then the clauses are both independent, and a comma and COORDINATING conjunction is needed.

    However, "so that" is a SUBORDINATING conjunction -- a very different thing.
