I think most people in this forum are against hyphens in a domain name because
- they are difficult to spell (over the telephone, for example)
- people might remember the domain name, but not the hyphen
- hyphens are not part of "natural writing"
But in some countries (like Germany) hyphens are very common in domain names
and not considered as bad or unprofessional. Personally, I don't have any problems
with hyphens in a domain name. But one hyphen per domain name is enough

Dashes can be fine provided your repeat visitors can remember the dashes. As for the keyword - what makes you think you need the keyword in the domain name? It used to be conventional wisdom that a keyword in a domain name provide an SEO advantage but the search engines outgrew that a while ago.
