Co-location of electrical/non-electrical wiring

Is it permissible to run coax cable in a suitable sized PVC conduit with electrical conductors? The max distance would be roughly 20 feet.

No, it is not permissable or advisable. The electric field will degrade the signal on the coax. You shouldn't even run these wires parallel (within a foot of each other) if at all possible.
