Student or Learner
I would like to know the techniques on splitting or making pauses of a long sentence in a more natural way.
For example, would native speakers put a comma before the word "and"? :
Prof Chan received his PhD from University College London in 1993, and was Professor of Networked Systems of its Computer Science Department until 2001.
Also, I have noted that people would put a semi-colon or a comma before connectives such as "however", and which of the punctuation is used more frequently? Thank you.
I would put a comma before 'and' to break up a long sentence like that.
