[tlhIngan Hol] [KLBC] Can you use several adjective-verbs for the same noun?

I have a new question today / DaHjaj De’chu’ SagheltaH.

Looking at the TKD’s adjective section, I could see that all the examples
only have 1 adjective per noun.

So what happens if you want to describe something which has several
attributes within a sentence?

For example, in the sentence:

“I see a young, tall and bold officer”.

Is there a canon reference somewhere listing several adjectives linked to
the same noun? As in:

“yaS Qup woch jaq vIlegh”

Or, in those cases, would the most grammatically correct option be to use
relative clauses for each attribute, and using only 1 adjective after the
noun? Like this:

“jaqbogh ‘ej wochbogh yaS Qup vIlegh”

And, would it then be possible to use “but” in between as in “I see a
young, tall, bold but crazy officer”?

“jaqbogh ‘ach maw’bogh ‘ej wochbogh yaS Qup vIlegh”

Satlho’! :)
