The above comma is called a comma splice and is considered grammatically incorrect. What you have here is two complete sentences. The writer either needs to separate them with a period or question mark. or connect them with conjunctions like and, but, or, nor, yet, and so.
Another option is to separate them with a semicolon. You can use a semicolon to signal the reader that the two sentences are closely related to each other.
Bear in mind, however, that a semicolon is considered a soft period and not a hard comma.
