dumb electrical question
Sorry for the dumb question:
If I am laying new romex wire, do I have to put all the connections/splices in junction boxes (like handy boxes) behind walls or in soffits?

All splices and connections must be in accessible junction boxes. You can not bury them inside walls or soffits even if they are in a junction box.

All joints are required to be in junction boxes! All junction boxes have to be accessable!:yes:
