The opposite of polysyndeton is asyndeton. Asyndetons use commas without coordinating conjunctions.

The most common coordinating conjunctions are: for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so. (You can also use the acronym FANBOYS.)

"On and on and on" utilizes successive coordinating conjunctions and no commas.
