Do "yet" and "but" always introduce second main clauses?

in other words, must they always be preceded by a comma? Can you provide a counterexample?

What other connectors are always preceded by a comma?

I'm not sure about "yet", but "but" certainly doesn't always need to be preceded by a comma.

'but' must always have a comma. 'yet' does not necessarily need one.

'therefore' must always have a comma after it.
