This one is correct. We use a comma after a direct address, i.e., the name of the person we are addressing. It's a rule that can be seen in most elementary texts on punctuation.

#1.

We normally pause briefly when we call someone in that way. Hence, the comma.

Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.

I know there's a pause, but why? is it an appositive? Is there a grammar rule? where can l find more information about it?

olive bee 18 is it an appositive?

Not really. It may be considered a variant of a noun in apposition because there is an implied subject in the imperative -- "you".
Probably the better term would be a parenthetical element.

Here is more information. See point #4.
