I have the formula Al2(SO4)3. Would I distribute the 3 to become Al2S3O12 or what?

No, you do not.  The 3 is the number of sulfate ions that are required to bond with 2 aluminum ions.  Distributing it gives you an entirely different compound that may not even exist.

I'm trying to find the molar mass though.

(26.98 g Al)(2) + (32.07 g S + (16.00 g O)(4))(3) = 342.15 g/mol
