    He moved

    Please would you take a look at these sentences and correct my mistakes. I am not sure if I have punctuated them correctly.

    1. He moved to a little village near the coast, where he had hoped to find peace, but an accident with a boat made him paralysed.
    2. It caused her pain to think what she would have achieved in her life, if she had studied at university.

    In #1 remove the first comma. In #2 the comma is not necessary.
