What is correct?

Draw number 4 five times.

or

Draw number 4, five times.

Do we need to insert a comma between 4 and five? If the correct syntax is with a comma, is it because 4 and five are technically two numbers?

Draw number 4 five times.

This is the more "correct" one. In this case, it is similar to saying "hit me five times", where "hit me" and "draw number 4" are both actions.

Draw number 4, five times.

This is not really proper English. It is similar to saying "Draw number 4. Five times." This sounds like a rather informal, imperative command.
