Just wondering if Matlab has the function to format script, e.g., automatically add a space after a comma, or add spaces before and after an "=" when I press semicolon at the end of a statement, or select a block of script to be formatted and press some button. Thanks.

No, MATLAB does not have that. Fortunately, David Varga recently mentioned releasing a beautifier; see

control-a, to select all text in your editor window, then
control-i, to fix (properly align) the indenting of your lines of code.
