Is it common to do a bone marrow biopsy and a spinal tap in one day/doctors visit?

Neither is common. None of these procedures are common and even less common together, however, that does not mean that there was any thing inappropriate in doing the two procedures in one visit. It would depend on what is suspected to be your health issue.
