Mensagem:  "The only thing I would say is for you to use less commas. If the sentence gets too extend it's hard to read and to comprehend ."

These are real questions, not an attempt to highlight any mistakes/typos, okay?

1. Should you say "fewer commas" instead? Or is it pretty common in everyday spoken lgg., as you said "[the] more you do, [the] better you get"?

2. Is the objective missing (referring to the word "sentence") after "comprehend"? Is such omission simply more informal or is it a typical error foreigners make? I mean, should you have written "If the sentence gets too extend (extent / extensive / long ??), it´s hard to read or comprehend IT".

Thanks for helping, Sidney.
