1. He fell, but wasn't hurt.

2. He fell but wasn't hurt.

I would only use #2. When there is one subject but two verbs, no comma should be used before the conjunction. Am I right?

Hi, Freeguy,

It's OK that you would only use #2. It is not wrong to use the comma, however.

Both sentences are perfectly correct. The comma is optional in such cases.
