    Comma Question

    1. Do I need a comma for the following sentence?

    Studying the materials in advance really helped raising your grades, and it also helps you focus in class more.

    2. Is the second clause trualy considered as an independent clause?


    3. I have already looked at the definitions and examples of indepandent clauses and dependant clauses.

    As long as the sentence can grammatically stand on its own, it is an indepandent clause, right?

    Thanks in advance.
