I was gifted a neat mini-keg with a 1 gal capacity. I've only ever bottle conditioned my beer in the past.

I currently have a nice lager that's nearly ready to bottle. Is there any issue in siphoning off 1 gal for the keg and resealing my carboy? Hypothetically, doing this 5 times as the mini keg is emptied?

You're introducing a lot of opportunities for oxidation and potentially infections to take hold by doing that, but yes it's theoretically possible if you're clean and sanitary about it.
