Yes--there's no limit to how many players can be substituted at once. Also, in the National League (or any league where pitchers have to bat) a team can make a "double switch", which in the case of a pitcher and catcher would result in the new pitcher batting in the previous catcher's spot in the batting order, and the new catcher in the pitcher's spot (probably ninth).

The starting pitcher and any substitute must pitcher to a minimum of one batter, or have an Out made, before he can be replaced. Other than that, the Manager can change the pitcher whenever he wants to.

Teams in the Major Leagues can change pitchers as much as they want to in a game but any pitcher that comes in is required to face a minimum of one batter before they can be taken out of the game for a new Pitcher.

How many hours is a Twins game?

A Twins game is no different than any other baseball game. Since pitchers pitch at different speeds and some are better than others, games can range anywhere from 2 hours to 5 hours. If the game is a pitchers duel (i.e. the pitchers are pitching really well and there are not many hits in the game) look for the game to end closer to 2 hours. Should the game be more of an offensive powerhouse, then look for the game to go around 4-5 hours. An average game is around 3 hours.
