Using と to connect adjectives

For connecting sentences with adjectives, it seems the te-form of the adjective has to be used, but can と be used as well?


これは大きいときれいです。


これは大きくてきいれいです。


Are both of these correct?

Does it make a difference if と is used to connect to related items when they are not nouns?

Only the second sentences is correct. If you switch the position of the adjectives, you would use で because きれい is a な-type adjective. これは きれいで 大きいです。
