No, we can not use Commit or Rollback, within a trigger. To understand, take one simple example...
Suppose two persons are using one common table and they both have written trigger on that table. If in the first trigger we are using commit/rollback, then the second use would get some unwanted result.
That is the reason, why we don't use Commit/Rollback in Triggers.
Yeah. If some type of failure/ breakdown occurs, in that case Oracle automatically Rollback the data. Source: CoolInterview.com

In trigger you cant use the Comint or rollback option. It will be commited or rolled back automatically once the driving startement is commited or rolled back. But if you want to forsibly commit the transaction in trigger then user Progma_autonomous which will forcibly commit Source: CoolInterview.com

we cannot use commit and rollback in triggers without using PRAGMA AUTONOMOUS_TRANSACTION.
triggers are fired when any DML is performed on a table like insert update or delete, and these all have tendency to lock the rows for their operation. whereas Commit or Rollback when used releases the locks if any acquired by transaction. thus in this state trigger gets confused either to lock the rows or to release the lock and goes to mutating stage.
with use of autonomous_transaction parent transaction is seprated from child transaction and child transaction can be committed or rolled back without affecting parent transaction and that is how we can commit or rollback in triggers.
