I have a question about a punctuation in a sentence

This answer was rated:

I have a question about a punctuation in a sentence
Thank you for asking your question. Let me help clarify when to use the comma in each:

He pulled his suitcase into a car and sat on it all the way to a railway station. Do I need to have a comma before and?

Commas can be used as sentence pauses and in this case it is not necessary.

I live in New York and actually have a neighbor, Susan. Do I need a comma before and?

The comma in this case helps define what you are trying to say. If you want to emphasize that you live in New York, then use the comma.

In the first sentence you sais that the comma is not necessary, but is it grammatically wrong to have a comma there, before "and"?
It is not grammatically wrong.
