Never double space between hyphens because they are meant to "glue" words together.
Ex. 300-400 lizards, three-year-old, 8:00-8:40.
"Or" or "our" in words?
Ex. favorite/favourite, rumor/rumour, flavor/flavour, color/colour. "Or" is often used by the Americans.
British English, New Zealand English, Australian English and Canadian English, all use the latter.
A comma before "and" isn't necessary but is often used when there is an independent clause after it.
Place a comma before "but" when it is at the start of an independent clause*.
*(a complete sentence on it's own)
