  1. From Internet:

    The 8 comma rules!! The 1st comma rule: Use commas to separate words. and word groups in a simple series of 3 or more times. The 2nd comma rule: Use a comma to separate independent clauses when they are joined by the following conjunctions: and, or, for, nor, so, but, and yet.
