A run-on sentence is really two sentences, inappropriately joined. It consists of two independent clauses which are not separated by punctuation or joined by a comma with a coordinating conjunction.

# 3 is a run-on sentence. "Karen's uncle arrives tomorrow" is the first sentences. It could be followed by a semi-colon before the next sentence, "she wants to see him." Or, the clauses could be joined by "and."
