    Is this correct: You should teach her how to cook. That'd be pretty cool. VS You

    Is this correct:

    You should teach her how to cook. That'd be pretty cool.

    VS

    You should teach her how to cook, that'd be pretty cool.

    Are both okay here?

    A semicolon would work better than your comma.
