    no you cant needs to be the same MAH rating/value as one will drain more than the other. i dont recommend it.

    Series, no. They need to be the same or you will get poor performance as the drained cells restrict power flow from the cells that still have juice in them.
    Parallel is ok as each pack drains at its own rate.
