Native English speakers, could you please help me with these issues?

Does it make sense to say:

"I submitted an application to replace a lost identity card, and to this day I haven't RECEIVED ANY NOTICE from you."

Note: By 'received any notice', I mean 'received any information or feedback'.

    Not quite.

    It should be, "I submitted an application to replace a lost identity card but I've not yet received a reply."

    And as I've mentioned to you many times, you shouldn't put commas before the words 'and' or 'but'.

      In this example, putting a comma before and is required by grammar.

    I prefer to write I submitted an application to replace a lost identity card and haven't had a reply to date.

    To date means the same thing as to this date but it sounds more professional.

    Just say "I have not received a response".  And don't use all caps, it just looks like you are yelling at them.  Then you need to follow with a question that they can respond to like: What is the status of the application?
