Using a comma before 'ma'?

English uses a comma before _but_ if, and only if, it introduces an independent sentence. Is it the same in Italian?> - Essere sinceri è importante ma non troppo.> - Andrei in vacanza il prossimo weekend ma non ho tempo. In reference to above examples, can anyone explain when a comma before *ma* is needed and whether there are differences in use between Italian and English?
