Hello,
Would you mind telling me, which variant is more correct:

One hundred firty five thousand six hundred fifty two dollars 00 cents, or

One hundred firty-five thousand and six hundred fifty-two dollars 00 cents

I don't know if is necessary to use "-" & "and"

Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure if you mean $135,652.00 or $155,652.00.  The "and" usually goes with the last number.

For $135,652.00, it would be one hundred thirty-five thousand, six hundred fifty-two dollars and zero cents.

For $155,652.00, it would be one hundred fifty-five thousand, six hundred fifty-two dollars and zero cents.

The hyphen links to numbers together like fifty-five and twenty-two.  You can leave out the "and" altogether with a comma or pause, though it's easier to understand with it in.

One hundred thirty-five thousand, six hundred fifty-two dollars, zero cents.
