    Post Use of 'and' and 'or'.

    Is the use of 'or' and 'and' in the following sentences correct?

    I was never watching TV in my school days or now even I don't do.
    I never forgot you or I will never do that.
    I don't borrow money from any one or I don't lend to any.
    He has worked in this project before and is even working currently in the same.
    I have done the washing and has to do the cleaning now.

    Thanks a lot for your reply. I have one more question now.

    Can we omit the subject after "and" as it is done in the sentence "He has worked on this project before, and is working on it now."
    Then the sentences would be as follows

    I never watched TV in my school days, and still don't.
    I never forgot you (I have never forgotten you), and never will forget you.
    I don't
    borrow money from anyone, and don't lend (money) to anyone.
    I have done the washing and now have to do the cleaning.

    Are they correct ? Please reply.
