If you mean "can I use semicolon to separate the data from the two zipped multivalue fields ", then the answer is yes.

 | eval mydata=mvzip(Field1, Field2,";") 

Using the above on Field1 which has value...

Field1Value1
Field1Value2
Field1Value3

...and Field2 which has value...

Field2ValueA
Field2ValueB
Field2ValueC

...results in a multivalue field named mydata with...

Field1Value1;Field2ValueA
Field1Value2;Field2ValueB
Field1Value3;Field2ValueC
