Example:
"After a full day's work, Tina's payment was a measly $6.45. She grunted and tossed into her bag. What the hell was she supposed to buy with that? A hairbrush? A donut?"

OR
"After a full day's work, Tina's payment was a measly $6.45. She grunted and tossed into her bag. What the hell was she supposed to buy with that, a hairbrush, a donut?"
I would definitely use the first one. I don't like the second one.


IS IT:

"Where do you work and what is your role?"
OR
"Where do you work? And what's your role?"
Both are correct and I don't have a preference.

ONE LAST THING:
When asking a question in the middle of a paragraph, is it okay to do this:

"What time was it? I didn't even want to guess."

OR

Do you have to put the "I don't even want to guess" in a new paragraph? This is internal dialogue.
I've never heard of anyone saying that you have to start a new paragraph after a question. I can't see any reason not to have both of them on the same line. In fact I'd probably find it weird to have them as 2 separate paragraphs.
