    I was taught in English class that there is no comma before and and but in a sentence.

    #10 is wrong. Or, rather, outdated. The singular “they/their” is acceptable and understood to be singular by the context of the sentence.

    @Denise: No comma if the clause following the conjunction is incomplete, but a comma is required if it is a complete clause that can stand as it’s own sentence. Then there’s the Oxford comma when writing lists. It’s not always needed; however, not using a comma before the conjunction may completely change the sentence.
