In brief: More info needed

What do you mean? We never leave two pacemakers active in the same patient.
Each would sense the others' activity and abnormal behavior of both would result.

In brief: Not sure

Not sure why you would have two pacemakers.
.. Usually only one is left in place when you have a generator or battery change. Perhaps you mean a dual chamber pacemaker which means there are two wires -- one is in the atrium and one in the ventricle.
