Good job, Red, for actually correcting a thread title! Everyone should be so conscientious! This site is generally full of these mistakes related to "your/you're":
they're/their/there
we're/were/where
it's/its
Also site/sight/cite!

Whatever. . . .
1. Pasta and cheese with two or three vegetables mixed in: It's got it all!
2. Monday Night Football doesn't belong on TV!

Who, what, when, where and why.
Is it proper to use a comma before or after and now or not at all ?

No, never end a preposition with a sentence.

Yes, you are also right in some neighborhoods. So I will amend the title again.

Hai, both ways are considered acceptable, depending on the publishing situation, as long as the sentence's meaning is clear.

The more "open" style of punctuation (as little as possible, so that comma is considered not necessary) is preferred in all British writing and in U.S. journalism, such as most newspapers (using the standard Associated Press guides) and many magazines (Time, for example).
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0738207853/102-5048418-4212162?v=glance&am p;n=283155&%5Fencoding=UTF8&v=glance

For most American book publishers, though, "close" punctuation is preferred, at least regards this usage of the "serial comma," where a comma follows every item (when two or more) before the "and."

"Countless publishing professionals have learned the details of their business from this classic guide for publishers, editors and writers. It's updated every 10 years or so, and the 15th edition is the most extensive revision in decades. . . . Some things do remain the same. The style guide still endorses the serial comma . . . ." {Note that this Amazon review, from the industry periodical Publishers Weekly, does not itself use the serial comma after "editors."}
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0226104036/102-5048418-4212162?v=glance&am p;n=283155&%5Fencoding=UTF8&v=glance

Q. I totally agree with Chicago’s use of the serial comma. However, I am creating a style guide for a company that does not use the serial comma. For the sake of consistency, I am considering stating in the guide that the serial comma is not to be used at all (yikes!). My question is: Is it better to be consistent (and not use the serial comma at all) OR to add in the serial comma ONLY when it is necessary to prevent ambiguity? I wish that I could just DEMAND the use of the serial comma at all times, but alas, I am just a lowly intern. Thanks a lot for your help!

A. Well, if you don’t allow it at all, you will at times be stuck with situations like the following hypothetical dedication page that our managing editor likes to cite: “With gratitude to my parents, Mother Teresa and the pope.” (Maybe that example will help you change your company’s policy.)

. . . Q. Hello. In the sentence “I went to the store to buy eggs, milk and cheese” do you put a comma after “milk”? What is the standard now for comma usage after the second-to-last item? I have seen such sentences both with and without the comma. Thanks.

A. Chicago style is to put a comma there (it’s called a “serial” comma). There are times when that comma is necessary to avoid awkwardness or ambiguity: “My favorite combinations are green and yellow, blue and purple and black and red.” Since it is sometimes needed, and is never wrong, the simplest way to impose consistency without having to stop and think about each instance is to form a habit of adding the serial comma.
