We all know that 'which' indicates non essential modifier and should proceed by a comma. Does that mean we will 'which' in SC always proceeded by a comma and we will not have 'which' in the statements without coma.

Pl discuss with exls.

I think the "which modifier" should always be ", which". For example, "I like the house, which Jack built."

You can use "which" to start a question, which does not require a comma. For example, "Which house did Jack build?"

you use "that" when the information that follows is needed to identify the subject of the main clause and you use "which" when the information that follows is NOT needed to identify the subject of the main clause.
