#1 is wrong. no comma between compound predicates with the same subject.
#2 is correct. Commas are needed between two complete independent clauses. Repeating "I' is unnecessary, but it isn't wrong. You can do so if you choose to, especially for informal writing or speaking.
see https://www.businessinsider.com.au/a-guide-to-prop... ; Rule #1.
#3 is correct, as described in #1. This is the most efficient choice, but that doesn't mean it's the only correct one. Efficiency is not always the goal of the speaker.Source(s): studied linguistics and English grammar; native speaker

The third one is correct.
Commas are not needed before the word 'and'.
You don't need to repeat the word 'I'.
