Hey Boofer,
 
You have to be online to get any mining done! All the work comes from the blockchain and the blockchain nodes need to check your work too. Once you’re online again, the mining should start again automatically. If not, shut it down and restart the miner.
 
You can mine with multiple GPUs… but I’d need a lot more detail before I could tell you how. I reckon if you search for your coin, GPU, OS, mining app and a term like “multiple miner” then you should find a solution.
