I came across this sentence,

星が光って、綺麗です

To my understanding, て form is usually used to link multiple actions or talk about multiple states. How does the て form work in this sentence with an adjective and verb?

The te-form has many uses, and in this case this is te-form for cause or reason. Here, 星が光る is the reason why the speaker thought 綺麗. The "result/effect" part can be a verb or an adjective.
