Answer to 2 Weeks Notice - company terminated me

These facts entitle you to unemployment benefits.
You also might be entilted to the commissions depending on the language of the commission plan.
Whether or not it is "legal", that is whether or not it gives rise to a wrongful termination suit, depends on other things, including whether or not the reason they let you go was an illegal reason. Contact an experienced employment attorney for more advice.

Answer to how can i appeal a wilful misconduct decision?

Answer to severance

In Connecticut, the period that you receive severance pay, in your case, 3 days, will not delay the commencement of unemployment benefits if you had to sign a release of claims in order to get the severance pay. The Unemployment Department simply wants to know if you had to sign such a Release. If you did, provide a copy of it. If you didn't, then your unemployment benefits won't begin until your severance period is over.
