Do you add a comma before Jr or Sr or III in a name?

No comma is necessary before "Jr.", "Sr.", and the like. No comma has ever been necessary before "III", "IV", etc. From the Chicago Manual of Style (http://ow.ly/gcv0):But please note that within text, if you decide to use the more traditional comma before Jr. or Sr., the function of the comma is to set off these abbreviations, so an additional comma is needed after the abbreviation if the sentence continues (as in my first sentence above).

Do you have to use a comma before and?

That depends on how you are using the word. It isn't always necessary, but if the word "and" is joining two independent clauses (independent clauses are basically sentences that can stand on their own), then you definitely need a comma before the word and, or any coordinating conjunction. Examples: Apples and oranges may be different, but they are both delicious. I like to eat apples, and I love orange juice. In the first example, a comma is not necessary before the word and because it is just joining two words together. In the second, the comma is necessary because the word and is joining two sentences together.
