Using However Correctly

We must always insert a semi-colon before and a comma after however to connect two independent clauses.

Incorrect:    Japan was an expanding giant however it could not generate enough capital to support its rapid industrial development.

Correct:       Japan was an expanding giant; however, it could not generate enough capital to support its rapid industrial development.

Using however instead of ‘but’ or in the meaning of ‘no matter how’ or ‘not matter how’ may or may not require a comma. You can further explore this topic on writing well here.
