If a person leaves an employer with a 401K, and also has an IRA (traditional, tax defered)

#1 Can the 401K money be rolled over into the IRA?

#2 Since both the IRA & the 401K are tax defered, is there any reason not to comingle the funds.

Currently the IRA is selfdirected in equities. The 401K is invested in the employer's stock whose returns have been signficantly less then zero over the last 18 months.
