    Wrong. The second part of the sentence is unrelated to the first.

    Correct.

    Thanks in advance!

    A string of periods of indefinite length is not a punctuation mark. It seems that you're trying to write an ellipsis (...).
    An ellipsis has three dots within a sentence, and four when it includes a closing period - never more and never less.
