Since you're interested: "should instead" is slightly more formal
phrasing, although from the point of view of sense there's nothing much
in it.  The comma before an adverb would be non-standard, but the same
comment applies.  The tendency among native speakers nowadays appears to
be to underuse commas---none of these things are quite as absolute as
people have sometimes liked to claim, although nowadays people sometimes
go to the opposite extreme.  In summary [comma] brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
