2 independent clause separated by a coordinating conjunction and a comma (,) or just a semicolon (;)

Complex sentences have 1 independent clause with one dependent clause.
A dependent clause has a subject and a predicate that has an subordinate conjunction which makes it so it is not a complete thought.

That is the acronym AAAWWUBBIS
After the dependent clause, you have to put a comma.
Ex: After the monkey ate his banana, he was very hyper.
Ex: I went to the party, and at the party I saw my friend Joe.
The ball flew over the fence, but it sailed foul.
The Subordinate conjunctions can also come in the middle of a sentence.
Ex: I went to the park before dinner was made.
Notice that I didn't use a comma.
Ex - John and Mikey drove to the park.
This is also a simple sentence.
