There are 2 ways to combine two sentences : Punctuation and Conjunction.

1.Punctuation

1.semicolon  [;]

eg. He is a good student; he studies hard every day. I like him. //semicolon connect two related sentence.

2.dash [–] and  colon [:] (press [ALT]+[-_] to type it on Mac) 

eg. He is a good student – he studies hard every day.  I like him. //dash connect two related sentence too.

2.Conjunction

Fist of all : This is wrong : Because he is a good student, so I like him very much.

Conjunction expressed a parallel or logic relationship.

Look at following 3 sentence:

He is a good student, so/and I like him very much.

I like him very much because he is a good student.(In front of because have no comma[,])

Because he is a good student, I like him very much.

He succeeded both because of his intelligence and because of his hard work.

Even though / Though / Although he is nice, (yet) I don’t like him.(yet in here is a adverb, although it’s right, but suggest don’t use it like this.)

and / or / but / not but: connect same things.

eg. He failed because he was lazy and because he was selfish. = He failed because he was lazy and selfish.

eg. Is she kind or stingy/mean?

eg. He is nice, but I don’t like him.

eg. He’s failed not because lazy but selfish.

as well as / rather than

eg. Peter as well as I is fun of music.

eg. Peter rather than I is fun of music. = Peter, not I, is fun of music.

eg. He is ugly rather than handsome. = He is ugly, not handsome.

not… but… / not only… but also… / either… or… / neither… nor…

eg. Not he but I am wrong.

eg. Not only he but also I am wrong.

eg. Either he or you are wrong.

eg. Neither you nor he is wrong.
