In my English dialect, one can construct compound verb phrases with "and" like: "I cut and boiled the carrots."
This can also be used with prepositional verbs: "He worked for, and stole from, his uncle".
However, I'm unclear as to how one should punctuate this.
- He worked for—and stole from—his uncle.
- He worked for and stole from his uncle.
- He worked for, and stole from, his uncle
- He worked for (and stole from) his uncle.
