In Latin, as in English, compound sentences must contain either a semicolon or a conjunction to connect the two or more clauses.

Et.....both, and
Aut.....either, or
Neque.....neither, nor

Cornelia et pecuniam et praedam portat, sed neque percuniam neque praedam piratis dat.

You have learned that Latin verbs must be placed at the end of simple sentences. In compound sentences, each verb must be placed at the end of its clause. Because of this, when you translate a compound sentences in Latin, translate each clause separately.
