I have observed spaces used after any comma use, and occaisonaly where there was no comma,
I doubt it. Compare:
「この使いかた、普通じゃない？」 「でも、 これはちょっと可笑しいと思うよ」
The Japanese 「、」 character (Unicode U+3001 IDEOGRAPHIC COMMA) has spacing built into the glyph in every Japanese font I've ever seen. Adding a literal space (Unicode U+0020 SPACE) is not done in my experience.
but it would have made sense to have a comma in an English or German scentence.
The comma usage rule in Japanese is wonderful:
"Stick a comma anywhere you would pause if you were reading the sentence."
I have seen at times scentences broken up by clause as well. Kind of like "theboyran towardstheschool becausehewaslate."
With spaces? Maybe in textbooks, but never in authentic texts.
Don't assume I know what I am talking about. ^_^
