    "I have to think twice before phrasing any sentence and I think I need to learn more"

    "I have to think twice before phrasing any sentence and I think I need to learn more".
    Shouldn't there be a comma before "and" as it's connecting two independent clauses?

    Thank you.

    Yes.

    Write Shouldn't there be a comma before "and", as it's connecting two independent clauses? It's important to mark words which you're talking about, as opposed to words which are part of your own text, to help the reader understand what you're trying to say.
