and so...

I've come across this in student writing, and it is potentially a coordinating conjunction issue.

For example:

"John loves to dance, and Marie loves to dance."

But this is troublesome to me:

"John loves to dance and so does Marie."

Is it not a double coordinating conjunction, requiring a comma, introducing a second independent clause?
