Default Force Carbing to Bottling

I have never carbonated in bottles only force carbed in kegs. I really want to bottle half and keg half so that I can keep my brew for months without using up so much fridge space.

My question is this: Can I force carb in the keg and then bottle half the keg after? How do I go about doing so? And is there any difference between how long the brew will last being stored between the two different carbing methods?



Thanks!
