Hello. I found some information about gerund inside two commas and made some sentences a while ago. But I'm not sure if I did correctly beause there was no answer. Please go over these sentences whether it's grammatical.
1.He stood in the place, noticing the leaking water, not doing anyting wating for plumber at a loss.
2.He clogged the hole , noticing the leaking water, to prevent water from gushing out.
3.He made a lot of effort, noticing the leaking water, to prevent pipe from bursting.

He plugged the hole, preventing the water from gushing out, when he noticed the leak.
Since a leak will relieve pressure, there's little danger of a burst pipe as a result of a leak. He went to a lot of effort, after noticing the leaking water, to make sure the floors weren't ruined.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
