"You must read it right now" -- other than missing its final period, there is no problem with this example. Remember, you must always capitalize the first letter in a sentence and end the sentence with a period, question mark, or exclamation point.

 

"had been developed so much and it is part of our own lives and is totally different than before as we must" There are several problems with this text. The first letter is not capitalized. There is no period. Worse, it is not a complete sentence. It is several dependent clauses in search of a main clause. The reader cannot understand what you are trying to say. Here are the four dependent clauses in your text. None make sense as they are each incomplete.

 

had been developed so much

and it is part of our own lives

and is totally different than before

as we must

 

Putting them together does not complete any of them.
