New drywall to old
 
What is the best way to blend it in? The old drywall has a textured finish. It looks like someone just applied finish across the surface with a drywall knife. I know I will have to use joint compound on the seams. Should I sand down the texture/top coat on the old drywall before applying the tape and compound, or is there a way to remove the texture top coat?

Old compound(pre1980) contained asbestos particles. You would be better off applying water to the area and scraping off the texture.
