Re: Punctuating a list of independent clauses
I do agree with the vertical list idea, but if you are intent on keeping this as running text, then realize that each of your independent clauses is simple, and therefore a simple comma can separate them. If they had any sort of internal complexity to them so that one or more required a comma within that clause, then use a semi-colon.
