Questions on .css

What is the advantage of having a normalize.css and a style.css? Would it be better to have both of them in one page together?

Keeping them separate can improve maintainability.

The normalize.css is often something obtained from a 3rd party, so keeping it separate simplifies obtaining updates. It's also something you are likely to re-use on multiple sites, where the site styles stored in style.css will more likely be different for each site.
