Short answer, Yes. You can pour the same wort into two different fermenters. I split a 5gal batch 2 ways, and tried different yeast for the heck of it. And i had all the gunk come out in one of the fermenters, not a problem at all, but you just have to rack more carefully...

Do I siphon the fermented beer from the fermenting buckets to the bottling bucket or gently pour? If i do siphon is the goal to siphon just above the bottom to minimize bits of trub from getting into the bottles? On a side note, I've read here that some pour the wort or the fermented through a screen. Which is preferred?

Gnarl.
I use a simple clothes line clip to suspend the racking cane tip above the sludge. When the beer level gets low, tip the carboy (or bucket) slightly with a small 2x4 (or something) under one side, so the beer pools in the "corner" of the bottom and you get all the beer out.
