In English, I can never remember where to put the comma when using the conjunction word, but.
I'd like to stay home and read a book, but I need to pick up some cat food.
Jenny asked not once, not twice, but three times to see the open house that weekend.

I'm pretty sure the first example is right. Can anybody confirm the different comma configurations of the 'but' in the second and third?
This helps, but not sure they covered the correct comma placement.
