Comma with Subjects and Verbs


Grammarly Handbook tells us not to separate a subject from its verb. However, their first example seems confusing to me:

    The things which cause me joy, may also cause me pain.

Why does it need comma before "may"?

I looked at the page you are referring to. I think it has mistakenly been colored green (for correct) instead of red (for incorrect). You'll notice that the explanation discusses why the sentence is incorrect.
