    I would not write the original sentence without the comma.

    Note my correction above. I don't know what the blue underlined part means.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: is + depending on

    You need a comma.

    It doesn't matter how short the sentence is.

    Thanks.

    Yes, ideally you need the comma.

    The preposition phrase is a supplement, a loosely attached element that is set off by intonation (and usually by punctuation) presenting supplementary non-integrated content.
