Hey there, I had a quick question about subordinate conjunction.

When a subordinate clause starts the sentence, the comma is necessary right?

What if the independent clause started and subordinate clause followed, will the comma still be applied?

I just want to know the rules regarding the subordinate conjunction; rules based in the UK. Thank you!

Can you give some examples of sentences you think are correct and incorrect?
