two conjugated verbs together in same clause

What are the rules for this or is it possible? I always use the infinitive after a
conjugated verb, but not sure if it is correct.

I know certain verbs are always followed by the infinitive, poder, querer, saber & certain phrases also, but can 2 conjugated verbs be next to each other without an a or something between them'

This is also a case of 2 clauses and 2 conjugated verbs.
Quiero(independent clause)
que (relative pronoun)
vaya a la tienda. (dependent clause)

I believe that a subjunctive verb is what you are talking about. For example, I want you to go to the store. This would be translated as Quiero que vaya a la tienda. Vaya being the subjunctive verb.

There are 2 clauses there and 2 conjugated verbs..

No sé

si puedo seguir dándole vueltas al mismo tema.

seguir is an infinitive and dando is a present participle.

There can only be one conjugated verb in a simple sentence, or clause.
Ar you maybe talking about when they use a present or past participle with a conjugated verb'

Off hand, no, but it seems when I'm trying to converse it often comes up.

It seems that when they say certain verbs are always followed by the infinitive, that there must be cases where they are not.

I'll try to come up with an example.
