referred by a supply house

Hi, I'm new, referred by Aerostitch, a parts house I bought a grip heater package from. As I'm installing it I've come up with some questions about the use of relays that I'd like clarified. Professional answers only please.

1. Can I use a relay for more than one circuit if I stay within the Amp rating of the relay?? I think so, but just want to make sure.

2. Is there a rule of thumb which indicates a relay is necessary?? The grip warmers supply 55 Watts of power on high & draw about 4.6 Amps. I like being extra cautious.

I appreciate your time & feedback.
Nick
