Are television transmitters designed to broadcast two or more 6Mhz channels? Do commercial broadcasters do it in practice? If so, what are the limits (2, 3, 4... channels)?

It is not common practice due to tuning issues and loss factors with large power broadcast antenna, but a diplexor can be used to combine NTSC and DTV in some situations. A multiplexor can combine several near the same frequency but complexity factors are great and tuned baluns are complex enough for one Tx with high power.
It is always a compromise to share an antenna with power losses in the combiner.
