As far as I am aware, there are no specific set of words as such that require you to add a "," connecting the IC and DC. Generally from my experience, the ending word could be the subject, object or event he verb. Please correct me if wrong.

The words which are used to connect two independent clauses are For,And, Not, But, Or, Yet, So(FANBOYS)
Statement 1 : He performs like a rock-star.
Statement 2 : People enjoy watching him.
These statements can be joined using conjunction "and"

He performs like a rock-star, and people enjoy watching him.

IMO, there are no specific words which can be used to connect an independent clause with a dependent clause.

Hope that helps!

I agree with @pushpitkc

I am not aware of any such specific words which can connect DC to IC
