In brief: Yes

It is safe to combine milk and liquid formula (but do not add milk to formula powder).
After a baby is 12 months of age, and is eating a variety of baby foods, he can be weaned off formula and start whole cow milk. The weaning can be gradual over a week, in which more and more cow milk is mixed into the formula each day. By the end of the week, the baby's drink will be mostly or all cow milk.

The more breast milk, the better, but if there is not enough, partial breastfeeding is still better than no breast milk at all.
