    Abbreviation and sentence structure

    What is the correct abbreviation for verses? Is it vv. or Vv.? Also, is it acceptable to start a sentence with "and" or "but"? I've seen it in published books but have always been taught that it was wrong.

    Thanks for your help.

    Verses is abbreviated as vss.

    There is no reason why a sentence cannot be started with "And" or "But", save that of weak structure or poor style.
