  1. You made a typo with большая, but overall it will work only if you remove the coma. Есть can be dropped in most cases no harm, if it refers to verb ‘be’.

  2. If you remove the comma yeah. Есть can be dropped in alot of cases. Even with у…есть constructions dropping it is actually more common when reffering to an object already in reference/known to exist. For example, you wouldn’t say «у него есть голубые глаза» because you already know he has eyes. It would sound weird, like if you said «he has eyes that are blue». It makes sense but it’s unnecessary so you just say «у него голубые глаза».

    In this instance, even if you’re talking neutrally about some random gallery and its existence is not apparwnr, есть is still mostly unnecessary. It’s not like some Russian will hear you say it without есть and be like «wait, what are they talking about?». So yes it is correct, but the comma is unnecessary and you also spelt большая wrong.

  3. Unfortunately, your sentence is, while not too far off, not exactly right:

    * «Справа от реки большая галерея» can be translated as «The big gallery is to the right of the river».
    * There’s a big gallery to the right of the river requires «Справа от реки есть большая галерея»

    Есть in Russian is pretty complicated, I’ve heard. I am a native speaker and can fully explain all the nuances, so please consult your textbook.

    I _think_ in this instance we use есть, when the existence of something is the topic of discussion. We don’t use есть if existence is obvious to the listener, and we focus on properties, positions, etc:

    * Что у вас есть? У нас есть галерея.
    * Какая у вас галерея? У нас большая галерея справа от реки!

    PS: Mandatory funny example on есть complexity:

    * У меня умные ученики = My students are smart (all of them)
    * У меня есть умные ученики = Some of my students are smart (hinting that most of them are dumb)
