Low voltage cables question

The low voltage cables for my Air Conditioner and Furnace are run next to each other. I was putting up a drop ceiling and I zip tied the two cables together. Is there any harm in doing so?

I would guess no, but I wanted to make sure.

I also zip tied a portion of the cable to metal conduit with line voltage wires inside of it. Is it ok to have low voltage cable running along the outside of a metal conduit?

Cable tying the low voltage wires together is fine.
According to code..... no wires are to be fastened to the outside of the conduits.
