What i meant to write was: if you can put an 'and' between the two
adjectives with no difference of meaning, you can put a comma. Otherwise,
you can't.


No such rule exists in American English (at least, I've never heard of it).  The only rule is that a comma must be placed between two successive adjectives, with a few exceptions (as with numbers, in "two successive", though it still feels right to put a comma in there, anyway, since there's a natural pause in speaking).
