Indoorand Outdoor Outlets

Putting in a new 1/2 Bath whose wall goes to the exterior. On the outside wall, I have an outlet......

Since both will be GFI outlets, can I put the outdoor and indoor outlets on the same breaker?

No....bath outlets can't be shared anymore...I don't think. If they can (depending on what year code you have in your area)...they can only be shared with another bath IIRC.

No. Bathrooms can only share with other bathrooms and even then only if the lights of both bathroom are on a separate circuit.* Best to just run a dedicated 20 amp circuit.

*Based on NEC 2008. Your code cycle may be earlier.
