Have a look at this description of the issues related to multiple network 
connections.  

http://lartc.org/howto/lartc.rpdb.multiple-links.html

For incoming connections, the replies have to go out on the same interface.  
For traffic originating on your lan, you probably don't care and you 
can "load balance".  This article show you how to do that.
