There is/ are no water and air.

United States

I would say there is no "water and air" on Mars, if that is the only choice. But it would sound better to say there is no water or air on Mars.

The environment of mars has no water and air.

 Joining the 2 nouns makes it seem like we think of them as an item, like the example of "rice and beans". There is no Spanish "rice and beans" on the menu. Better: There isnīt any rice and beans on the menu.
