Subtle difference: capitalising is a specific act, as is punctuating.
Grammar, on the other hand, is more ephemeral. One can have bad
punctuation and bad grammar, but one can't refrain from, ahem,

the gas powered cars - no punctuation (or caps).
cat mat sat - no grammar.
No grammar => no sentence.
