You can daisy chain them in order to link them together and pigtailing the neurals will prevent the loss of downstream devices should you loose one device on the circuit. You should be careful not to overload the circuit though and if you do know what will be installed on a receptacle it is best to keep track of what it requires so you don't go over 16 amps on a twenty amp circuit.

It might be advisable to get yourself a good DIY book and read up a little before attempting anything if you are not familar with doing it, at least that way you can have a general idea on the codes involved so you don't have to redo it after the inspector sees it.

You might want to check out www.electricanpage.com seems to have a good deal of information you could use.
