How about 'went and (past tense)'? Do you native speakers use it as often as 'go and (present tense)'?
Hi, Kuen: We use "went and (past tense)" quite often. Whether we use it as often as "go and [base form]" is a statistical question that would require a great deal of corpus research, but my sense is that "go and [base form]" is more common.

Here are a few examples:
- We went and saw "Bohemian Rhapsody," the new film about Queen.
- I went and looked at my new classroom yesterday. It's nice.
- She went and visited her brother in the hospital.

"I went and asked for his help yesterday."
It's OK, yes, but I'd prefer the following:
- I went and asked him for help yesterday.
