    coma or not coma before "and"

    Hi again:

    I have found myself thinking over this (surely) simple problem and I would like to ask a professional for some kind of advice.

    In Spanish there is no necessity of coma before the preposition "and" in order to separate sentences. Actually, it is incorrect.

    Notwithstanding, I have seen this coma many times in English letters, books and all over the Internet.

    Is it necessary the coma before "and" in some cases?

    Which ones?

    Thank you again.

    comma between clauses linked by and:
    he sang, and he also danced
    no comma when the verb follows and:
    he sang and danced
