In brief: Yes
It sounds like you know the answer to your question.
Multitasking is an essential brain function. Listening and writing is one example. Interpreting (listening, comprehending and speaking) is a good one as well.

In brief: Multitasking is real
We all are able to handle more than one task at a time but some are much better than others.
This is not a single neuron issue but more a complex interplay of neuronal functioning that we develop over time.
