Indeed, "and yet" is redundant. 'And' and 'yet' are two of the 7 coordinating conjunctions. The five others are FOR, NOR, BUT, OR, and SO.

As for the semicolon right before 'yet', that would be incorrect.
When using a coordinating conjunction to connect two sentences, a comma is used.

For example:
I am not his biological child, yet he treats me like his own.
