Question: Can you put 2 GFCI outlets on the same circuit?

It is well worth putting two or more GFCI outlets on the same circuit, and its quite common.

Can I mix 12 and 14 gauge wire on a 20 amp circuit?

Yes, you can use 12 gauge wire on a 15 amp circuit. However, one should never put a 14 gauge wire on a 20 amp circuit, as the wires will melt and cause fire before ever tripping the breaker. Also, keep in mind that a 14 gauge wire is a bit better since its thinner and lighter than 12 gauge.
