    Who can use relative clause to combine the two following sentences:

    Who can use relative clause to combine the two following sentences:
    "The village is not far from here. Its people are very friendly".
    My idea is that: "The village people of which are very friendly is not far from here"
    Is it correct? Should I put commas after "village" and "friendly"?
    Could you explain me when we use commas in these kind of sentences?
    Thanks in advance!

    Your sentence is not correct so it's pointless discussing comma placement.

    Re: Who can use relative clause to combine the two following sentences:

    I'd say: "The village, which has very friendly people, isn't far from here", or "the village, where people are very friendly, isn't far from here."
    Just to make it clear, Village People was a very famous band!
