...directly related to architecture, however can give you much...

Hello,

While others dig deeper into a wider range of topics, which sometimes aren’t directly related to architecture, however can give you much food for thought.

Am I suing the "however" conjunction right?

    No, the last part of your sentence doesn't make sense to me. I'm not sure what you mean.

    Is it possible to use just the 'Yet' or 'but' conjunctions in my original sentence? Would that make sense? I want to avoid an independent clause and make sentence as short as possible.

    I think this is fine - yet or but

    Oh, now I understand the problem. I though that "however" can work as a conjunction in the same way as Yet or But.

    One question, why do you omit the comma before the which? Can I go with the comma?
