The general rule is that a pronoun can only relate to 1 antecedent. Basically, if there is a singular pronoun there should only be 1 singular noun in the sentence that it can refer to. With the exception of introductory clauses, the occurrence of the pronoun will be after the noun.

Hopefully that helps.
