Actually, the comma should come before the conjunction, but the conjunction is unnecessary.
You can have two independent clauses joined by a comma--this is called a 'comma splice,' and is perfectly acceptable in British English, though it is frowned upon in American English.
Here is an example of the proper use of a comma splice: I am writing a sentence, soon I will be speaking a sentence.
