Is there ALWAYS a comma between the two parts of a compound sentence? "I went to school, and my brother went to work."

There is when the are connected by a coordinating conjunction. Another way is to use a semicolon with no conjunction, but this option isn't used as much.

 

I went to school, and my brother went to work.

I went to school; my brother went to work.
