    Welcome to the forum.

    Please note my corrections above.

    There is no simple answer to that question. Sometimes you need a punctuation mark after "and" and sometimes you don't. You will need to give us some complete sentences to consider.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Note that 'and' is a conjunction – not a preposition.

    Oops! I was thinking so carefully about the punctuation aspect that I missed that!
