Mensagem:  Use a comma before a coordinator (and, but, yet, or, nor, for, so) that links two main clauses:
I studied hard, but I didn't pass the test.
But joins two independent clauses:
I studied hard. I didn't pass the test.
(...there are no unbreakable rules for using commas--or any other marks of punctuation.)
